The air in Delhi is continuously spoiling the health of the people. In such a situation, the demand for closure of schools of children was being raised continuously because an order has been issued to close the school up to class VIII in Noida. Now Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has announced that primary schools will remain closed from tomorrow i.e. November 5. Kejriwal held a press conference regarding the deteriorating climate of the capital. He said that we are taking all necessary steps to control pollution. That’s why we are closing all primary schools in Delhi from tomorrow. Apart from this, outdoor activities are being closed for all classes above fifth.
CM Kejriwal says that to curb pollution in the capital, it is being considered to implement odd-even on vehicles. At the same time, primary schools in Delhi will remain closed till the pollution situation improves. Earlier, National General Secretary of Confederation of All India Traders (CAT) Praveen Khandelwal had urged the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi VK Saxena to issue an order to close private and government schools till the pollution level improves.
