The Centre has said strict vigil will be maintained against polluting activities in Delhi and neighbouring towns to ensure better air quality and the authorities concerned would visit the sites and check pollution in Delhi. It is a matter of great pity that Delhi air quality hit an eight-month low. As a matter of fact, air pollution is very dangerous for those suffering with lung problems. So it must be checked with full force.

Rooftop solar panel should be allowed
The Panchkula administration should approve the installation of free rooftop solar panels /plants on private residential buildings under the renewable energy service company (RESCO) model, recently approved by the Chandigarh Administration. It can result in residents getting electricity at Rs 2 per unit less than the existing rate for the next 15 years even if the electricity rate increases. The same will result in the administration achieving their target of generating solar energy as well as being environment friendly.

Jind remains backward
Last week, on my way to Delhi, I had to cross Jind. Unhygienic conditions prevailed from Devilal Chowk to Rohtak Road.The stretch of 3 km was dug up and a lot of dust was being raised by the non-stop traffic. This area is thickly populated and on both sides of the road t. Jind is also called the 'political 'city and all parties hold their rallies here. But no political party has ever bothered to develop this town.
