The World Health Organization (WHO) has labeled India’s capital New Delhi as the world’s most polluted city. And if WHO has the rankings of the world’s dirtiest cities, in all probability, Delhi will again be at the top of the list.
Today, it appears that the entire city of Delhi has become a huge site for dumping debris and its pollution is already killing people at the rate of 25 a day.
Delhi’s filth has become a cause of concern for all citizens despite the fact that Indian politicians deceptively praise the city.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi claims his “Clean India Campaign” is cleaning India including Delhi successfully. And Delhi’s Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal shouts that his government is doing a commendable job.
But you can’t stop Modi and Kejriwal from telling lies because both are habitual liars. If you really want to see the world’s dirtiest city, the following pictures will reveal some truth about Delhi’s filth.
During the first two weeks of this month (May 2015), I visited different parts of Delhi to take these pictures. Let’s take a look.
Here’s our Delhi.
The entire waste of the locality is dumped at this site that stands right in the middle of a housing colony. Causing disease and depression to the residents.
A deadly pothole in a small park. Can you come alive out of it?
Open pavement that can cause a fatal accident particularly when people walk in the dark.
Stinking site where only stray dogs can live. But it is near a populated residential area.
Another dangerous site spreading pollution just near a government school building.
This place is supposed to be a green park. But wasteful weed is growing here. Humans stay away from it.
A site for throwing waste just adjacent to the building of a posh private school.
Is there any honest politician or bureaucrat in India who can take care of Delhi?
