Kejriwal's Emergency Meet After Court Says Delhi Like 'Gas Chamber'

On Thursday, the court used strong words as it questioned whether the government had taken any action to check pollution and asked for a "time-bound action plan'

New Delhi:  Arvind Kejriwal, the Chief Minister of Delhi, has called an emergency meeting today on rising pollution in the capital, a day after the High Court likened the crisis to "living in a gas chamber".

On Thursday, the court used strong words as it questioned whether the government had taken any action to check pollution and asked for a "time-bound action plan' by December 21.

Plans submitted by the environment ministry and the Delhi government were "not comprehensive", the judges said, because they did not specify responsibilities and a timeline.

The National Green Tribunal had earlier ripped into the Delhi government for not acting "seriously" on mounting pollution problem. It has also called for a "stay-at-home" alert for children and older people.
