New Delhi: Following a spike in the pollution level in the national capital, Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor on Saturday posted a picture on his twitter handle which says 'Delhi is injurious to health'.
He posted a picture with Delhi's famous monument Qutub Minar in a cigarette box and some lines in Hindi which roughly translate to - How long will you live on cigarettes, bidis, and cigars. Just come and spend a few days in Delhi-NCR region: Delhi Tourism.
Many people reacted to Tharoor's tweet. Some felt that it was politicising the issue.
Delhi's Air Quality Index (AQI) has slipped into the 'Severe Plus' category and the Environment Pollution (Prevention and Control) Authority has declared a public health emergency, experts have advised people to urgently take steps to protect their health.
