“Masaan” star, actress Richa Chadha, known for making bold statements and choices of characters in her films, has taken straight aim against the government over increased levels of pollution in New Delhi. The city has recently been named the most polluted capital in the world.
Calling it a failure of the Government, the actress tweeted, “we are dying”.
Just want to remind everyone in the north... it doesn’t matter which party you support...we’re dying. We’re being slow poisoned. The state has failed us, cuz it’s 2019 and we don’t even have clean air to breathe.— TheRichaChadha (@RichaChadha) November 13, 2019
The Air Quality Index (AQI) in areas of the national capital city spiked to the “hazardous” category, 500 in some areas, with 425 being the overall level on Tuesday.
Residents, however, will have no respite as pollution levels are expected to spike to the emergency category in the near future, due to the dip in temperatures and wind speeds, according to the government's air quality monitor.
Netizens also joined lampooning the government over its inefficiency to control the situation. Some also condemned voters for choosing the government on the basis of caste, creed and religion while negating important issues like health and education.
Voting in North is always done in line caste, Creed, religion. So health, education is never priority in North. Therefore no party will fear to loss thier election even if they never delivered about health, education, etc. Hence people of North are prime accused for situation.— Stylish Freind اسطاءلش 🌏 (@stylish_feroz) November 13, 2019
Individuals, awhole group of them, enjoying worldly pleasures & earning easy money at the cost of environment r responsible for the mess we live in. We keep on adding to it yet keep on blaming political parties / establishment.— Sanjay Verma (@sanjay6502) November 13, 2019
More we r rich & educated, more we become hypocrite.
I'm Sorry Richa. North is busy trolling @ReallySwara for being sensible human being. We don't want clean air as long as we can feed on hatred for minorities and liberals. We are happy breathing bigotry and misogyny. Right Mr. @Sanjay_Dixit ??— Rao Amit Kumar (@MySeditiousFart) November 13, 2019
