I have been observing and watching on the news that the pollution levels in Delhi are just horrible at the moment. Schools are getting closed, sports events are getting called off, a few cricket games have been called off. It’s a situation which is only getting worse by the day.”
“If we don’t act, there are going to be massive problems in the future; the kids are going to suffer from diseases. So you know look after your family members, look after the children, whose future really depends on how we look after the current situation and make better for them. So it’s my humble request to act in an appropriate manner. Be aware, be more sensible, be more intelligent and not do things that are harming the environment even more. Let’s get together Delhiites, and let’s start making a difference because it’s very, very important,” he added.
