New Delhi/IBNS: As severe air pollution continues to grapple the national capital, Delhi Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena called a meeting with Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Environment Minister Gopal Rai on Friday evening to take stock of the situation.

Saxena said the situation arising out of air pollution in the city is "extremely worrying".

Taking to microblogging platform X, Saxena wrote, "The situation arising out of air pollution in the city is extremely worrying. I have asked CM & HMinister (Environment) for a meeting at Raj Niwas.... to take stock of the situation."

Delhi LG also appealed to the people to remain indoors as much as possible and not expose themselves, especially the children and the elderly to hazardous ambient conditions wherein AQI has reportedly crossed 800 at places.

Given the deteriorating situation, the Aam Aadmi Party Government has imposed the Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP) stage 3.

A strict ban on construction and demolition works has been enforced in the national capital region.

The committee has stressed daily water sprinkling along with dust suppressants and frequent vacuum-based sweeping of roads.

On Thursday, the Delhi government announced the closure of all state-run and private primary schools till Saturday.
