New Delhi: As the air quality in the national capital deteriorates to “severe” category with the Air Quality Index (AQI) on Monday stood at 500, many Indians were wondering if Delhi indeed deserves to be called the national capital in the first place.

In fact, this even prompted several people to say they wanted to move out of the city.

 

What most of them pointed out was the fact that this is not the first time Delhiites have been suffering owing to the pollution. Winters in Delhi have become practically synonymous with smog!

While some suggested cities like Nagpur, Bengaluru or Chennai as alternatives, others cited reasons for shifting the capital.

Delhi-NCR lay enveloped in a thick layer of smog, with almost no visibility; the smoggy haze, which is rightly being called apocalyptic, caused schools to remain shut till Tuesday.
