Time To Introspect Take a look around, if the roadside sign "stop pollution' is too hazy to read, it's because the government, indusry and the public are to blame. The government will not tax the polluting vehicles, the industry won't innovate and the public will not ask for its right to clean air.
For the government The government needs to stop subsidising polluting fuels like diesel. The poor do not benefit from subsidies. The rich do. The increasing number of diesel versions of car models hitting the market gives credence to this argument. So price fuels as per the cost. Instead, the government must give incentives for those who want to go for cleaner fuels like compressed natural gas (cng). It must pursue a policy that penalises pollutants
