The Delhi government is all set to launch the ‘Red Light On, Gaadi Off’ Anti-pollution campaign in all the 272 wards here from November 2 in a move to reduce pollution in the national capital.

Motivating residents to participate in the campaign, Delhi Environment Minister Gopal Rai on Wednesday urged people to prompt five of their peers, friends, or acquaintances to play their part in reducing city pollution by switching their vehicles off while waiting at the traffic signals.
