On 23rd of August 2021, Monday, the Chief Minister of Delhi Mr. Arvind Kejriwal announced on Twitter, the inauguration of India’s first ever smog tower. This smog tower can help in reducing air pollution and improve the air quality of Delhi.
According to the speech given by Kejriwal in the inauguration ceremony, the tower is about 24 meters tall and has the capability of cleansing air within a kilometer of its vicinity.
Delhi’s BJP unit claims that BJP MP from East Delhi, and former cricketer Mr. Gautam Gambhir has inaugurated and installed the first smog tower of the country and chides the CM over alleged false claims and misinformation.
“Delhi’s first smog tower was installed by Sh. Gautam Gambhir in 2020. CM Kejriwal has done mastery in lying. Stop misleading the people, they know all your dirty tricks. You’re a credit seeker, rest you’ve done nothing for Delhiites. Wake up from the slumber!” BJP Delhi unit tweeted on 2:55 PM, Indian Standard Time.
The tweet shows the anger and distress amongst BJP leaders in Delhi, who have always been very expressive about things they do not appreciate. The spat between the two political parties quickly escalated into a war of words amongst their followers on Twitter.
