Twitterati slam state, Centre as worst ever smog engulfs Delhi

With Delhi witnessing its worst spell of smog in 17 years, leading to increase in breathlessness and asthma cases, Twitterati exploded with anger slamming the state and the Central government for failing to take concrete steps to curb air pollution.

Delhi on Saturday saw the worst air pollution of the seasons. The smog that hung low over the city kept pollution levels extremely high breaching the safe limit by over 17 times at several places.

Here's what Twitterati had to say:

Meanwhile, hundreds of people, including children on Sunday staged a protest at Jantar Mantar over the deteriorating air quality in the national capital, demanding the government to take effective initiatives to curb the rising air pollution.

The protest, organised by various citizen's group of Delhi, was also joined by celebrities such as Nafisa Ali among others.

"To curb the pollution, Delhi Government's Odd-Even initiative was a huge success. If possible, it should be implemented once again," actress Nafisa Ali told the media.

Another protester said: "Delhi has already become a gas chamber... how will people breathe in such pollution."
