Pan waala-  Ye lijiye

Walking back towards office, Anjana meets them in midway

Anjana- Contributing to air pollution?

Vivek- Ek cigeratte se kya hota hai

Anjana- Well guys, when you were getting high on nicotine, we were getting high on smog and finally Lucknow tops the chart in Air Pollution and surpasses Delhi to become India’s most polluted city!

Yes, guys, big congratulations to all of us as Lucknow became the number 1 polluted city in India on Tuesday. After a day of relief, Lucknow once again became a gas chamber with the Air Quality Index (AQI) of 484. While Delhi’s AQI was 298.

While Delhi and Varanasi saw a dip in Air Pollution, Lucknow’s neighboring city, Kanpur becomes India’s third most polluted city in the country.

The pollution level in Lucknow gained 58 units and pushed the city into the ‘severe’ category. The PM 2.5, which is the prominent pollutant, affects people’s health severely. The research also shows that people with Diabetes are also affected due to air pollution.

Yesterday, morning many people complained of breathing problem in the city. A resident of Hazratganj, Sanjay said, “I’m unable to go for morning walk since last 5 days due to air pollution in the city. Yesterday, I thought of using a mask for my morning walk. However, I started feeling irritation in my eyes and I came back home.”

People in the city are demanding the government to stop all construction work in city, including metro, which is becoming a major source of dust in the air.

Administration, on the other hand, is planning to ban all diesel vehicles older than 10 years in Lucknow, if the level of air pollution doesn’t improve in the coming days.
