Delhi wakes up to a chocking blanket of smog, but the police personnel on duty brave the situation

ON TUESDAY, the national capital Delhi found itself under a choking blanket of smog, with levels of the fine pollutants known as PM 2.5 reaching over 700 as against 300 which itself the authorities call hazardous. But the traffic police in Delhi has no options but to be at the streets to perform their duties. The IPS Association thanked Delhi traffic police by tweeting the following:
“Personnel of @DelhiPolice @dtptraffic brave the smog to ensure people reach home safe उनका बहुत धन्यवाद @CPDelhi #DelhiSmog #DelhiPollution”. 
The levels of airborne pollutants are so high that the situation is likened to smoking 50 cigarettes a day. Thick smog is believed to have been caused mainly by stubble burning by famers in neighbouring Haryana and Punjab, with no hope of respite for at least the next couple of days, as the Indian meteorological department predicts calm wind with no rain situation to continue in the next couple of days.
Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal in a Tweet on Tuesday said, all have to find a solution together, adding how “every year, during this time of the year, Del becomes a gas chamber for almost a month”.
