Quote of the Day (26-05-2014)


“Bangalore is more polluted than Chennai and Hyderabad. As per World Bank ranking, the city comes seventh in the country. The percentage of carbon monoxide is escalating from year to year. A report says, 10 years ago the quantum of this gas was 1.01 million tonnes to 2.26 million tonnes now. People allegedly inhale 71 microgram per cubic metre in a year. This will undoubtedly have an undesirable impact on health. About 50,000 vehicles and an equal number of floating vehicles contribute to this pollution. The authorities should act with iron hand to implement Central Act prohibiting movement of old vehicles and prosecute those who don’t adhere to the law.”
