Source: Zee News, New Delhi, Oct 8, 2017:- With the air quality across the National Capital Region
(NCR) already reaching unhealthy levels, residents are bracing up for even more
toxic days ahead - especially with Diwali round the corner. The Supreme Court
last month lifted a temporary ban on sale of fire crackers, and the move is
likely to contribute to rising pollution. October has already seen seven days
with the air at unhealthy levels with experts blaming the resumption of crop
burning in adjoining Haryana and Punjab since late September. Prevailing
weather conditions too will see pollutants choking Delhi and nearby regions.
Now, with smoke from firecrackers all set to engulf the area, the situation -
once again - is threatening to become all too gloomy.
