According to PTI, Delhi recorded the second highest pollution level of the year on Sunday. The highest pollution level was recorded at 571 on November 8, a day after Diwali.

CPCB said that Ghaziabad recorded the worst air quality level with an AQI of 475 in the National Capital Region (NCR). Air quality in Faridabad and Noida was also recorded in the ‘severe’ category.

The Delhi environment ministry on Sunday instructed the Delhi Pollution Control Committee to track the areas that are vulnerable to high pollution and keep a watch on violations. Experts say that the ‘severe’ air quality level makes breathing hard even for healthy people.

At least 30 areas in the national capital region recorded severe AQI levels. Noida recorded the worst air quality with an AQI of 464.  An Air Quality Index between 0 and 50 is considered “good”, 51 and 100 “satisfactory”, 101 and 200 “moderate”, 201 and 300 “poor”, 301 and 400 “very poor”, and 401 and 500 “severe”.

Wind speed and other meteorological factors have made the situation “highly unfavourable”. The minimum temperature in Delhi today was recorded at 4.6 degrees, three notches below the season’s average, the meteorological department said.

The overall PM2.5 level — fine particulate matter in the air with a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometer — was recorded at 369 and the PM10 level at 533, the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) said.

Children and senior citizens have been asked to minimize outdoor exposure. Millions suffered as Delhi-NCR air pollution hit hazardous levels.

Monsoon lands two days early in Kerala, the Northeast

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has confirmed the early onset of the monsoon over Kerala and northeast India, marking the commencement of the rainy season. This year, the monsoon arrived two days ahead of schedule, heralding above-normal rainfall expected from June to September. The IMD meticulously considered various parameters before officially declaring the onset of the monsoon.

The IMD’s announcement on Thursday signified the initiation of the four-month-long rainy season across the country. The simultaneous arrival of the monsoon over Kerala and Northeast India deviated from its typical schedule, reaching the mainland two days earlier than the customary date of onset over Kerala, usually observed on June 1st. This early arrival echoes a similar occurrence seven years ago, precisely on May 30, 2017.

The early onset of the monsoon carries significant implications for various sectors, including agriculture, water resource management, and public infrastructure. Farmers in Kerala and Northeast India can anticipate favorable conditions for crop cultivation, with the timely arrival of rainfall boosting agricultural output. Nonetheless, authorities must also remain vigilant against potential challenges such as flooding and landslides, which often accompany heavy monsoon rains.

Furthermore, the IMD’s announcement enables stakeholders to undertake necessary preparations and precautions to mitigate the impact of the monsoon season. Adequate infrastructure maintenance, disaster management strategies, and community awareness programs are essential components of ensuring resilience against the monsoon’s effects.

The early arrival of the monsoon in Kerala and Northeast India signifies the onset of the rainy season, bringing both opportunities and challenges for the region. As the country embraces the forthcoming months of abundant rainfall, coordinated efforts across sectors are imperative to harness the benefits of the monsoon while safeguarding against its potential adversities.

Akhilesh Yadav says people are so angry they will make it difficult for BJP to win 140 seats

Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday said it would be difficult for the BJP to win even 140 seats in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections. Yadav took a jibe over the NDA’s slogan of Abki baar 400 paar, and said, they have forgotten their slogan of crossing 400 Lok Sabha seats. He added the people are so angry that they will make it difficult for the BJP to win even 140 seats.

The SP leader attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said he has started stumbling due to anxiety. He accused the BJP of neglecting farmers and waiving loans of only industrialists and promised that the loans of farmers will be waived after the INDIA bloc government is formed. Akhiliesh Yadav was addressing a joint rally in support of Congress candidate from Maharajganj, Virendra Chaudhary.

The former Uttar Pradesh CM accused the central government of deliberately leaking recruitment exam papers so that the youth remains unemployed and in order to snatch reservation. Yadav promised the people that the opposition parties will provide jobs and demolish the Agniveer scheme of recruitment in the Indian army after the INDIA alliance government is formed.

He pointed that BJP is putting up big tents for their events but people are not coming. He further added the BJP is making the government officials sit in the election rallies in plain clothes to fill the tents. Lok Sabha elections are going to take place in Maharajganj on June 1.

Earlier the SP leader told the media that they have seen massive voting in favour of SP and INDIA bloc in the sixth phase. People have extended unprecedented support to them and it seemed that the NDA will be left much behind. He said earlier he used to say that the INDIA Bloc are ahead in 79 seats and the fight is only 1 seat. But now it seems that they are ahead on all 80 seats in Uttar Pradesh.
