 South Delhi Observes a 'Car Free Day' To Curb Rising Air Pollution

To curb rising air pollution in Delhi, a car free day - an initiative by the Delhi government - was observed in a southern part of the national capital. It was the fifth such event.

The car free day was observed from Munirka T-point to Hyatt Hotel T-point on Vivekanand Marg in South Delhi.

Rai said, "The Aam Aadmi Party government is taking every initiative to bring down the air pollution level in the city."

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia, however, gave the event a miss.

AAP legislator from Malviya Nagar Somnath Bharti and AAP legislator from R.K. Puram Pramila Tokas led the cycle rally.

Among other leaders present at the event were legislators Naresh Yadav from Mehrauli (South), Ajay Dutt from Ambedkar Nagar (South), and N.D. Sharma from Badarpur.
