New Delhi. After three days of apocalyptic haze and smog turned Delhi into a gas chamber, the Capital breathed easier on Tuesday as the air quality slightly improved from ‘severe’ to ‘very poor’ category. But the situation is still grim and the government is trying to find a short term measure to give relief to citizens.
Ravi Shankar Prasad meanwhile is up to the task to defend the economy and he has been doing it since last 1 month. Today he told in a press conference that people are staying inside houses that proves that they have houses, and that proves that the economy is really doing good.
He did acknowledge that smog is bad for health, but he also asked economists to learn from the smog data that most people in Delhi have houses and that economy is going really well and more and more Indians are buying houses.
He also appreciated the Punjab government to not stop burning of stubble as the smoke generated is creating the smog which is helping provide data to the Finance department about how many people are staying inside houses these days.
