New Delhi: On Thursday, the people of the capital Delhi had to start the day with suffocating breath amidst smog and pollution. People also complained of burning in the eyes along with difficulty in breathing.

Arjun Prajapati, a resident of Noida, alleged that despite the government’s imposition of restrictions, there has been a huge sale of firecrackers in Delhi and NCR region.

“Despite the government’s ban, so many crackers were sold in Diwali, which led to this situation,” he said. There is so much trouble that I am not even able to breathe, there is burning in my eyes. Pollution is increasing. The government should take some steps for this.

The air quality index (AQI) in the national capital stood at 364 (very poor category) at 8 am and was at 408 (severe) with slow wind speed at 7 am. During this, there was also a sudden increase in pollution due to alleged stubble burning, which led to a deterioration in the quality of the air.

Apart from this, there is a blanket of mist in the city, due to which senior citizens are finding it difficult to breathe.
