Gad­kari plans meet with city govt on bad air

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES CITY -

New Delhi: Road trans­port min­is­ter Nitin Gad­kari on Thurs­day said he would soon hold a meet­ing with rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Delhi gov­ern­ment and en­vi­ron­ment min­istry to work out a strat­egy to curb wa­ter and air pol­lu­tion in the cap­i­tal, par­tic­u­larly pol­lu­tion caused due to dust.

Gad­kari said he will call Delhi LG Anil Bai­jal, chief min­is­ter Arvind Ke­jri­wal, the three may­ors of the mu­nic­i­pal bod­ies, en­vi­ron­ment min­is­ter Harsh Vard­han, ur­ban devel­op­ment min­is­ter and of­fi­cials of Niti Aayog to pre­pare the plan. “Some of the mea­sures that could be taken up in­clude more use of pre-cast ma­te­ri­als for con­struc­tion and us­ing vac­uum clean­ers to re­move dust from roads. We will see how we can wash the roads daily and de­velop lawns or lay con­crete pave­ments on ei­ther side of the roads to en­sure there is no dust,” the min­is­ter said in response to a ques­tion on the in­creased pol­lu­tion in the city.
