Why aren’t the million deaths every year, caused by air pollution, an election issue?
1.2 million people die every year in India from air pollution. Several million more are sickened and suffer from respiratory distress every day.
Why is this not an election issue?
Why is this not the center piece of the BJP or congress manifestos?
Why will no candidate or party in this country lose the elections because they refuse give the air pollution problem the importance it deserves, and take action?
Our PM and our leader of the Opposition are travelling around the country a giving speeches blaming each other for our problems, and focussing on telling us all that the other is incompetent.
Is this not irresponsible?
