RWA demands sealing of polluting units in Barnala village

New Delhi, Nov 10 (UNI) President of Resident Welfare Association, Barnala village, Dayanand Vats
on Friday appealed to National Green Tribunal, Delhi High Court and the Supreme Court that orders be issued for strict action against the pollution mafia in his village and polluting units in Laldore in Pudkurth village be immediately sealed due to which the area was turning into a gas chamber.
He said,'' Barnala residents are bearing double the pollution than Delhiites who are making a hue and a cry over its rising levels but Delhi government and North Delhi Municipal Corporation haven't initiated any action as yet against the pollution mafia.''
Mr Vats complained, "Rubber and rubber tyres were being burnt openly in a deserted land near Rohini till last evening. The pollution mafia is hell bent upon causing air pollution but despite repeated complaints, no action is taken.''
''Due to steep rise in pollution levels, capital's Barwala village gets converted into a gas chamber every night since past three years. The poisonous smoke emanating from the furnaces of the banned industrial units being run illegally in 300 metres plots situated in Laldore of Puthkhurth village, some distance from Rohini Heliport also turns Barwala into a gas chamber every night,'' he noted.
He further noted," Factories choke the air with smoke as soon as the clock strikes 12 midnight due to which it becomes difficult to breathe. People are coping with diseases along with bad odour and poisonous smoke.''
Mr Vats further said ,"we raised the pollution issue at all levels but no action has been taken against the illegal polluting factories. It has really become hard to live in this suffocating atmosphere. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia have been apprised of the situation but these industrial units spreading hazardous pollution have not been yet shut down.''
'' Barwala villlage has now become the world's most polluted rural area. People are suffering eye irritations, cough, asthma as a result of increasing pollution and i myself is facing its consequences.Most astonishing thing is that the agencies on which the onus of taking action against the errant units lies, are feigning ignorance. This matter has been brought to the notice of all concerned at the Centre and Delhi government and those responsible for environment conservation in the national capital,'' Mr Vats remarked.
''Letters were written to the local administration, area legislator, Delhi Lt governor Anil Baijal, Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal,Central Pollution Control Board, Delhi Pollution Control committee and all related environment ministries but the functioning of these polluting units is going unabated.The receipts of letters written to the CM and Central Pollution Control Board have been found from their respective offices but there is no word on the closure of these factories,'' the president informed.
Mr Vats lamented that they have been snatched the ''Right to live''. ''People are grasping for pure air. The air quality has reached to a detrimental level in Barwala.'', the leader stated.
