As Delhi grapples with air pollution, CM Kejriwal takes a private trip to Dubai: Reports

Reports state that Satyendra Jain, the power minister of Delhi had also been on a week-long trip to the Gulf nation recently.

The national capital is choking with severe air pollution as winter sets in and smog makes the air difficult to breathe, its CM has left the country for a private trip. According to a report in the Times Now, the Delhi CM has left for Dubai with his wife Sunita Kejriwal on a private trip.

Reportedly, Kejriwal has taken an Air India flight to Dubai last night. The report claims that power minister Satyendra Kumar had also taken a week-long trip to Dubai recently.

The Delhi government is, however, maintaining complete silence over the trip and not giving any information to the media, the report added. Many people have expressed their displeasure at the CM leaving for a foreign trip while the city is struggling with hazardous levels of air pollution.

Former AAP leader Kapil Mishra has also criticised the timing and secrecy of the CM’s trip.

It is notable here that Delhi’s air pollution has remained in ‘severe’ category since a couple of days. The Delhi government has been criticised on several occasions for its failure to curb air pollution levels. Last year, it was revealed that the Kejriwal government had been sitting on Rs 787 crores of environment cess collected and had been busy bickering with the CMs of the neighbouring states while Delhi’s air remained toxic.

The National Green Tribunal had also slammed the Kejriwal government for not taking sincere steps to curb pollution. The Delhi HC had also slammed the Delhi government for their lack of good governance.
