New Delhi: To combat air pollution, Delhi`s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Wednesday launched the “Swachh Delhi” app to empower citizens to complain against garbage, burning of dry leaves in the open and polluting vehicles.
Through this app, the citizens can send photographs of any activity which directly causes air pollution.
Launching the app, Sisodia said the decision was taken by the Delhi Government following a high-level meeting with Lt Governor Najeeb Jung, the central government and other stakeholders during recent meetings to tackle air pollution in the city.
“Now the people of Delhi can capture images of offending vehicles causing air pollution and other related activities like burning of leaves, plastic and old tyres, unattended garbage dumps and also construction waste,” he said.
“This will be forwarded to the concerned department and teams will be immediately dispatched to resolve the problem,” Sisodia said.
