Looking at the latest survey report data, more than four million people are being exposed to polluted air every day in the last four years. Yet the government has not paid any heed to this scary situation.



The Supreme Court of the country has given notice to the government several times but the government has not lost its sleep. International studies have shown that air pollution is proving to be very harmful for the weak- hearted.

Pollution problems have taken a major shape due to environmental degradation and industrialization which has led to the loss of human life.

 There, twenty-four hours the poisonous hazardous smoke of factories and vehicles spread so fast that the air was breathtaking.

 If pollution continues to increase like this, what will be our future? It's very clear.


We must come forward together to fight against Air pollution  so that we can have a longer and healthier life.
