Delhi’s air pollution has always been an alarming issue.
Licypriya Kangujam, a nine-year-old climate activist, urges the Indian government to declare a health emergency in Delhi as the people living in the city are choking due to the pollution in the air.
Licypriya took to her social media account to post about the concerning issue in the country.
In the video shared on her social media account, Licypriya is holding a placard and asking the public to avoid using firecrackers in Delhi.
As the Indian festival Diwali is around the corner, Licypriya warns the public to be aware of the impact the firecrackers used in the festival could have on the pollution level in the city.
"I am fighting to save our planet and future. Please celebrate Diwali by not using firecrackers. If we are all together, we will fight this air pollution. We can make a change if we are together," Kangujam further said.
Meanwhile, Delhi's neighbouring regions - Ghaziabad, Faridabad, Noida and Greater Noida -- are also logging severe quality of air.
Gurugram and Greater Noida's air quality remained the worst amongst all, with air quality of 484 and 483 micrograms per cubic meter, respectively.
