As we are all aware that Delhi NCR is reeling under extreme bad weather. Crop burnings in Punjab and Haryana along with other things have added to Delhi’s woes with rising pollution levels this month. Despite knowing about the extreme pollution levels, a ‘Run for Children’ event was flagged off in Delhi today on Thursday. The question is why would anyone organise an outdoor event like this especially when the Delhi administration has ordered closure of schools due to high pollution levels? The current levels of pollution are in the ‘severe category’ and the high level of particulate matter in the air is quite alarming.
