New delhi is one of the most polluted capitals in the world. It has maintained its position continuously as such for the past few years. As a multicultural city people from every walk of life reside here and bear the burnt of excessive pollution which results in severe health crises for them. The most vulnerable among them are children and old men & women. Owing to this pollution the deaths caused by lungs cancer have been increasing at a great pace. Delhi at this moment stands on the brink of a severe health crisis as well that has been triggered by pollution.The conditions worsen for the residents especially in winters when smog engulfs the entire delhi and the regions surrounding it. Even a little exposure to such an environment can prove to be fatal for some people. Even in such an emergency like situation politicians love to play blame game and excuse themselves entirely from the role they are supposed to play. Some politicians in delhi blame the neighbouring states like Punjab and Haryana entirely for the pollution in delhi because many farmers in these states resort to the burning of after crops that contributes to pollution. Farmers in neighbouring states are often educated about the horrors of the burning of after crops but despite being flagged as hazardous they still persist in this folly to the utter dismay of governments. The surveillance with the help of local governments can help a great deal in changing this insouciant attitude of farmers. But studies have proved that putting allegations on stubble burnings as the sole cause of Delhi's pollution tribulation is only half truth. Burnings indeed cause pollution but the biggest contributor are cars and other motor vehicles that run on petrol and diesel. An extensive probe is required why Despite having a big chain of public transport like city buses and metros Delhi reels under such severe pollution that makes it completely unlivable .
