Delhi Environment Minister Gopal Rai on Monday said the "Red Light On, Gaadi Off" initiative would be relaunched on Thursday, as the national capital's air quality index (AQI) has dropped to "very poor." Under this, commuters are urged to switch off their vehicle engines when the light turns red at traffic signals. Also announcing a firecracker ban in Delhi during Dussehra, he asked residents to cooperate in lowering air pollution, stating, "Whatever work we do will have an impact."
