Delhi’s smog blanket has taken over everything. It’s nearly impossible to breathe properly without having a choking sensation, in the national capital. Delhi has been covered in a thick canopy of smog for the fourth day in a row on Friday. The organisers of Delhi Food Truck Festival (DFTF) have taken the decision to push the event to the next month, citing the obnoxious air of the city.
The two-day food extravaganza was scheduled to be held on Saturday and Sunday at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium.
"Delhites, wait for a while for the fun to begin at the second edition of Delhi Food Truck Festival. We care for you. We really regret the inconvenience caused," said a statement issued on behalf of DFTF's organising committee.
The festival will be rescheduled to December, and the venue will remain the same.
Singer KK, band Euphoria and DJ Anish Sood were some of the key performers at the gala, which was to offer a range of cuisines to patrons via around 40 food truck brands, over 30 food and beverage stalls and a mega bar.
The authority has decided to spray water over the city to settle the toxic particles of the air. Delhi has been facing severe air pollution since Monday. Illegal crop burning in the neighbouring states is being blamed to add up to the already deteriorating air quality of Delhi.
