Aaditya Thackeray Talks About How Mumbai Pollution Can Be Controlled

Mumbai is the financial capital of India and a city where people come to fulfil their dreams. Every year the population of this city grows drastically and so does the pollution, water crisis, housing problems and more. On this thoughtful episode of Sunday Brunch with Aaditya Thackeray, our Editor-in-Chief, Kamiya Jani, asked his thoughts on climate change and the severe shifts in the air quality of Mumbai. Read on to see what he had to say.

Aaditya Thackeray Shared How Government Planned To Control Mumbai Pollution

According to last year’s reports, the Mumbai air quality index was higher than that of Delhi! Since it’s a metropolitan city, the air quality has weakened over the past couple of years. Kamiya urged Aaditya to share some effective measures for the betterment of the environment, especially the air quality.

As the Yuva Sena leader, Aaditya was ready with an in-depth answer to this question. He highlighted that when it comes to Mumbai’s air pollution, the government conducted thorough research on things that contribute to air pollution like transportation, construction, industrial pollution and more. After extensive research, the Mumbai Climate Action Plan was launched in 2022 to tackle climate change and focus on decreasing pollution issues in the city.

If you are Mumbaikar or scroll through memes daily, you know that construction is going on in almost the entire city. Whether it is for high-rise buildings, roadways, underwater tunnels, metro and so on, the city is forever developing. With constant construction work in every nook and corner, Aaditya shared that the nearby areas can be sprayed with water to help settle the unnecessary dust particles.

He added that scaffolding around construction sites has to increase. Along with that, he talked about how the increasing number of residents of Mumbai, multiple vehicles and booming tourism of this city contribute to higher emissions of carbon dioxide. Although, he acknowledged that on a personal level, people have made changes to strive for a more suitable environment. However, climate change efforts have to be on a larger scale to effectively work.
