People residing in the national capital woke up to another cold morning as the temperature remained below normal level and a thick blanket of fog engulfed the region on Thursday.
Foggy weather in Delhi disrupted the rail traffic as well. According to the latest report compiled by the Indian Railways, as many as 11 trains were rescheduled after getting delayed for at least by an hour.
The maximum and minimum temperatures were recorded at 21 degree Celsius and 5 degree Celsius respectively.
Delhi, which is home to approximately 19 million people, is reeling under the menace of air pollution from the past couple of years. The region faced a major air quality crisis last year as pollution levels shot through the roof and even forced the shutdown of schools. Moreover, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had described the capital as a ‘gas chamber’ and local administration was compelled to declare a public health emergency.
