Apart from it, the police have been directed to take swift action against visibly polluting vehicles along with strict enforcement of PUC (pollution under control) norms.
Earlier on Wednesday, Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had also directed all schools of national capital to remain closed till Sunday.
“Can’t compromise with the health of children. All schools including private and government will remain closed till Sunday for all the classes,” Sisodia had said in a series of tweets.
“The air pollution has become unbearable affecting all. It has engulfed the city. The reasons for this may be varied from stubble burning in Haryana and Punjab to vehicular/ construction pollution but the fact remains that it is affecting the health of Delhi’s citizens,” an official order from Sisodia’s office had said yesterday.
