The podcast where we discuss the news of the week.
This week on NL Hafta, Newslaundry’s Abhinandan Sekhri, Raman Kirpal and Anand Vardhan are joined by Anumita Roychowdhury, executive director for research and advocacy at the Centre for Science and Environment.
The discussion kicks off with Delhi’s toxic air. Anumita says Delhi’s taken steps to curb air pollution over the last few decades but these interventions aren’t enough. She says alternative policy frameworks are required to incentivise farmers not to burn stubble.
On vehicular pollution, Raman says there are too many cars on Delhi’s streets, and the panel discusses how cars are now a “status symbol”. Would it help to frame the issue of air pollution as a national issue, rather than leave it to states?
This and a lot more. Tune in!
