Air pollution caused 17.8% deaths of India

In 2019, deaths attributable to air pollution in India accounted for 17·8% of the total deaths in the country. The associated economic impact could impede India's aspiration to be a $5 trillion economy by 2024. "Air pollution control in India is not an expenditure, but rather an essential investment in the country's future economic growth”

Neither central or state govts are serious. We must get them to act. Read full report attached. more

Air pollution control in India is highly essential. The pollution control department is hardly taking any initiative. more  
Madam Vinita You appear to be right. Political power is not in agreement with your views & they have pledged to achieve $ 5 Trln. economy by all means whatever be. They appear to have realised this & are on path to make high inflation to make double value without increase in products term. They have plan to make 5 big corporations to do business for monopolization & towards this they have passed irreversible farm laws. There will not be any MSP so that these big business houses make atleast more than double profit for boosting there plan & achievements though masses may not get 2 times meals. Leaders are not a affected as there sources are multiple & if in power can increase pay at their will without any limitation. Thus they are bound to legislate according to wishes of big business houses for political funding & part of multiple sources. They get pollution controllers at govt. expense & have not to bother for their electorates. Voters elect kings or directors & not mere leader representatives. Voters have to suffer for 5 years as they don't vote after taking commitment from them as they don't feel necessary for being electing their relative, same cast, friends etc. without understanding democracy. Leaders cheat them by pleading that their vote will be waste if not go to elected person & they can punish them for not voting as administration is controlled by them though have no real authority to control. more
