Manas Bhunia asks Supplementary Questions on deaths due to air pollution
Supplementary no. 1
Thank you, Chairman Sir. Will the Minister of Environment, Forest and Climate Change please share whether the government is aware that 40 per cent of the deaths in 2017 in Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal and Maharashtra were related to air pollution?
Supplementary no. 2
Is the government aware that there are more disability-adjusted life-years lost due to air pollution-related respiratory diseases than tobacco consumption? What steps does the government plan to take to counter the deaths due to the daily rising rate of air pollution?
