New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday said his government is committed to ensuring that no homeless dies of cold while sleeping on the roadside in the national capital.

While inaugurating two night shelters at Geeta Ghat locality near ISBT, Kashmere Gate, Kejriwal said: “This year we are committed to ensuring no one dies of cold while sleeping on the roadside. If it happens, it would be an embarrassment to the government,”.

“We have made elaborate arrangements to provide shelter to homeless people in Delhi. There are 198 night shelters across the city and we have also set up 40 additional tents to accommodate around 19,000 people.”

He said the Delhi government and the society would have to work together to make it possible that no one dies due to cold.

Kejriwal a few days ago also directed officials of various departments to ensure availability of all the basic amenities at the night shelters.

Kejriwal also launched “Rain Basera” mobile application and appealed to the masses to help the government by sending the picture of any destitute that is sleeping in the open, to the app.

“We have dedicated some mobile vans which will pick up such destitute and bring him/her to the nearest night shelter,” Kejriwal added.

Air quality Improves in Delhi After Several Years

Delhi's air quality improves to 'Good', best in years

Delhi hasn’t breathed this clean in years. Rainfall in and around brought the capital’s air quality on Saturday to the “good” condition, while PM 2.5 levels, recorded at 15 by the US Embassy and 17 by Safar, were the lowest in this year.

According to the System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting (Safar) and the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), the overall air quality index (AQI) of Delhi, which was at 47, falling in the good category.

The level of PM2.5 was recorded at 17 and the PM10 level was recorded at 31 on Saturday, Safar said. These denote levels of particulate matter, of two sizes up to 2.5 and 10 micrometres in diameter, in the atmosphere. In comparison, the AQI in New York was recorded at “good” at 17, at 34 in Frankfurt, while in London, it was “moderate” at 52.

A CPCB scientist said that in 2017, the city had witnessed the AQI recorded below 50 – at 42, but could not recall the exact date. The CPCB is recording AQI since 2015 and such good conditions have not been seen in the last four years.

Gufran Baig, scientist and programme director, SAFAR, said that this is the lowest AQI recorded this year and it will remain good for another two to three days. He said that the air quality has improved due to widespread rain received in the northern parts of the country.

“Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, all areas surrounding are receiving a good amount of rainfall this year which is improving the air condition in the city. Such kind of rain was never received earlier so the air quality has never reached this level,” Baig said.

Mahesh Palawat, Vice President, Meteorology and Climate Change, at private forecaster Skymet Weather told IANS that this was the longest spell of clean air experienced by Delhiites.

“The widespread rain has helped in improving air quality in Delhi as well as in Noida and Gurugram. Increased rainfall activity is likely to bring more respite in coming days,” he said, adding that the rain has helped in settling down pollutants. (IANS)
