Shares Capital’s achievement in reducing air pollutionNew Delhi, October 11CM Arvind Kejriwal on Friday participated in the C-40 Summit in Copenhagen, Denmark through video conferencing and said no plan to tackle climate change could be successful without the support and participation of the people while adding that Delhi’s two crore people were his strength.
Kejriwal held the video conference after the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) denied clearance to him for attending the summit on climate change and the organisers requested him to address the summit via video.
He also held a press conference at the C-40 Cities Climate Summit in Copenhagen, along with leaders of the world’s megacities, where they launched the Clean Air Cities Declaration.
Delhi is one of the 38 cities of the 94 cities attending the Summit to have committed to cleaning its air in a time-bound manner.
Sharing some of the steps Delhi took that led to the reduction in pollution, Kejriwal said, “We used a road rationing policy, to reduce vehicular pollution.” — IANS
