New Delhi: Congress MP Manish Tewari on Tuesday said that the air pollution in Delhi should not be politicized although it is a serious national issue.
Initiating the debate over the issue in Parliament, the Congress leader underlined that Delhi is not the only victim.
Tewari said: “When the issue of air pollution crops up in Delhi every year, why is it that no voice is raised from the government’s side and this House? Why do people need to knock the doors of the Supreme Court every year over this issue? It is a matter of grave concern”.
He said: “It’s not only about air pollution. Our rivers are also polluted today”. The Congress leader suggested that there should be a committee to look into pollution and climate change.
