New Delhi, Nov 8: As the Air Quality deteriorating in the national capital, Delhi Ministers, Gopal Rai and Atishi, on Wednesday held a meeting with experts from IIT Kanpur and CII regarding “artificial rain” to reduce pollution in Delhi.

Earlier in the day, Gopal Rai said in a press conference that they have issued an order to DPCC to run the smog tower at full capacity by Thursday as Delhi continues reeling under choked air pollution for the last several days.
Hitting out at BJP-led ruled state governments, Rai alleged that BJP ruled governments were inactive on pollution issues. “It seems that pollution is not a serious issue for BJP governed states. They only make statements on pollution but don’t do anything on ground,” alleged Rai earlier in the day.
The Delhi government today announced that the winter break in schools has been preponed and will be observed from November 9 to 18, as air pollution remains ‘severe’ category for the last several days. (UNI)
