New Delhi, We are trying our level best to reduce the increasing pollution in Delhi-NCR. Schools in Delhi and Haryana’s NCR region have been closed to save students from suffocating pollution. But the schools in Ghaziabad and Gautam Budh Nagar districts of Uttar Pradesh have not been closed. Children are going to school here everyday. In this regard, the district administration says that the schools will be closed after the order comes at the government level.
Diwali is not taking the name of reducing pollution in Delhi NCR. The Supreme Court has also shown strictness in this matter. The Supreme Court warned the Center and the states that some concrete measures should be taken by Wednesday evening to reduce pollution. At many places in Delhi NCR, the AQI is being recorded between 400 and 500. During this, the Delhi and Haryana governments have ordered the closure of schools last week keeping in mind the children, but till now schools are open in Ghaziabad and Noida, the districts falling in the region of NCR. Parents are compelled to send their children to school due to suffocating pollution.
Waiting for school management order
The school managements of Ghaziabad and Noida are waiting for the orders of the administration. In this regard, Nishant Sharma, head administrator of Vidya Bal Bhavan School, Ghaziabad, says that till now no order has been received from the administration to close the school, as soon as the order comes, the school will be closed. On the other hand, Bhupendra Singh, Manager of Holy Field School, Ghaziabad Vasundhara Sector 3, also says that till now orders have not been received to close the school, after the order comes, the school will be closed.
what the administration has to say
Ghaziabad DM RK Singh says that the administration is continuously taking effective steps to reduce pollution. Orders will be given to close the school here only after instructions from the government. So far no instructions have been received from the government in this regard. As soon as the instructions are received, orders will be issued to close the school here too.
Steps taken by Delhi Government
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal last week announced a slew of measures to tackle pollution, including shutting down schools for a week, banning construction activities and work from home for government employees. After an emergency meeting, Kejriwal said that his government would also present the proposal of lockdown before the top court after discussions with the Centre, Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) and other agencies.
Haryana government should take these steps
Schools have been closed for four days in four Haryana districts of Gurugram, Sonipat, Faridabad and Jhajjar within the NCR due to the growing problem of pollution. The Haryana government has taken this decision to close the school. Apart from this, the Haryana government has directed all government and private offices to get their employees to work from home.
