Indian Legislators Seek Solution To Capital's Pollution
As the Indian capital continues to choke under a blanket of thick brown smog, an opposition lawmaker wants clean air to be a legal right for all.
In an open letter to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, parliament member Deepender Singh Hooda has called for the chief ministers in the region around new dheli to form a committee to tackle the toxic air pollution.
Hooda has proposed to table a Private Member's Bill on the right to clean air during the winter session of Parliament, slated to begin November 17.
"There is no reason for us to not solve this problem," said hooda "What's really needed is a longer-term approach so we can provide a permanent solution for the sake of the next generation.".
