Our Lakecity has always been in news for its beauty and its lakes. But this time there’s a complete U-turn and it is not at all pleasant to hear for Udaipurites. Udaipur has been named amongst the world’s 100 most polluted cities by IQ AirVisual in its World Air Quality Report 2018.
Udaipur was ranked 94th in this list. The average PM2.5 level in Udaipur is 55.1. The air quality of this level comes under the ‘Unhealthy’ category and is dangerous for sensitive groups. The growing traffic and the regular deforestation happening around the city in the name of development is now turning out to be dangerous.
Unfortunately, 7 out of the top 10 most polluted cities in the World Air Quality Index Report are in India. Delhi, Kolkata, and Mumbai were the toppers from India and this is not something we Indians should be proud of.
Don’t you think it’s high time for us as Udaipurites to rise as One and take some important steps to improve the air conditions around us and make our Udaipur proud again?
