SC Says People Forced To Live In Gas Chambers
Court slams Centre for inaction on improving Delhi's air quality

The Supreme Court (SC) on Monday slammed governments of Punjab and Haryana for failing to curb stubble burning despite the top court’s order. It also slammed the Centre for not taking any concrete action to improve the air quality in Delhi-NCR.
