Earlier this month, Manish Sisodia had called a meeting with the Education, Health and Environment Departments, on Tuesday evening (November 7, 2017). The capital city had woken up to severe smog on Tuesday morning. The air quality was deemed 'severe' by Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) by 10 am on Tuesday. 'Severe' air quality affects not just those with respiratory or cardiovascular disease but also affects healthy people. The schools remained close till 12 November due to severe impact of the smog.
Taking the heavy smog situation into consideration, Children's Day for Delhi students has been deferred to 19 November. The government will organize the 'Dilli for children festival' at over 100 locations in the city. Addressing the media, Mr. Sisodia said "Dilli for Children Festival" would be organised at over 100 locations across the city on November 14.
"The festival will feature sports, arts and cultural programmes and activities, in which children can participate," Mr. Sisodia had said on Monday.
The minister also said the government would facilitate locations for the festival and different groups, including NGOs, residents' welfare societies and individuals, would organise different activities on the day.
