The New Delhi government has decided to close primary schools to protect children from air pollution and smog.
According to a foreign news agency, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has announced that primary schools are being closed from Saturday to deal with the smog crisis.
He said that no child should suffer under any circumstances, schools will be opened only when the weather improves.
It should be noted that every year in winter the entire Delhi is engulfed in smog due to the burning of crop residue by farmers, smoke from factories and vehicles.
On Friday, Delhi recorded around 25 percent more than normal levels of hazardous particulate matter.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is facing severe criticism from his political opponents for his failure to control the problem of air pollution.
It should be remembered that in the year 2020, a study was published in the British scientific journal, according to which 1 million 67 thousand deaths were caused by air pollution in India in 2019, of which 17 thousand 500 deaths were reported in Delhi alone.
Apart from this, the Indian capital is one of the most polluted cities in the world, while every year every effort is made to control it, but no significant success has been achieved so far.
