The air quality index of Delhi and across the National Capital Region ((NCR) has crossed the safety mark. The air has been deemed toxic as many parts have recorded 700 plus AQI. After environmentalists, doctors, now Bollywood actors have raised concern over the air we are breathing.
Actor Arjun Rampal was in the capital on November 2. The 46-year-old landed in the city and felt disgusted to look at the current situation.
Later on, Arjun tweeted about this issue and wrote “Just landed in Delhi, the air here is just unbreathable. Absolutely disgusting what has become of this city. The pollution is visible, dense smog. People are in masks. How much more disaster does one need to wake up and do the right thing? Tell ourselves we are wrong. #DelhiBachao”.
