Pollution to be Major Issue in Upcoming Delhi Assembly Elections: Survey

New Delhi: Air pollution is going to be a key influencer in the upcoming Delhi assembly polls, reveals a new survey.

More than eight in 10 residents of Delhi said the current pollution problem in the city is likely to influence their decision to vote in 2020 elections, said the survey by YouGov, an Internet-based market research and data analytics firm.

Millennials and GenZ are more likely to say this as compared to GenX respondents, the survey pointed out.

When it comes to solving the air pollution problem, majority (61 per cent) said both the central and state government should be responsible for this, said the survey that carries responses from 750 residents in Delhi in the month of November.

While one in six said the central government should look into this and almost as many feel it’s the state government’s concern, it added.

Meanwhile, the air pollution emergency aggravated with the air quality index (AQI) spiking sharply to 528 on Friday.
