Curbing Pollution

New Delhi| Delhi minister Satyendar Jain today said the city government is doing its bit in curbing pollution level in the national capital and the "results can be seen".

 

"The PWD is cleaning roads and mud. The difference in the pollution situation can be seen. Nothing happens all of a sudden, we had been preparing to combat pollution and results of our work will show," he said.

However, according to the Central Pollution Control Board, the air quality continued to remain in the 'very poor' category.

The government had set up a special task force to work out ways to combat pollution in the national capital.

Jain, the Delhi health and PWD minister, today also inaugurated a mohalla clinic at a night shelter in Shakur Basti area, officials said.

Mohalla Clinics scheme is one of the flagship projects of the AAP government and currently over 100 such facilities have been set up in different areas of the national capital. The Arvind Kejriwal-led government has an aim to increase the number of such clinics to 1,000.
