‘Red light on, Gaadi off’: Arvind Kejriwal

The chief minister of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal has launched a campaign for the citizens of Delhi- ‘Red light on, Gaadi off’ – to make people aware of the efficacy of the action and to ensure its success.

In this ‘Red light on, Gaadi off’ campaign to tackle air pollution in the national capital, he urged people to turn off the engines of their vehicles while waiting at the traffic signals.

“Experts say on an average a vehicle stops at a red light for 15-20 minutes in a day consuming 200 ml of fuel. This creates so much pollution. If 10 lakh vehicles switch off the engine at the red light, 1.5 tons of PM 10 and 0.4 tons of PM 2.5 will be prevented every year,” he said.

The Delhi government is launching the anti-dust drive, bio-decomposers to curb stubble burning, and formulating electric vehicle policy to check air pollution.

The AQI of Delhi is stated as 255 (Very Unhealthy) as of 10 am on Friday.
