Yersterday night President Ram Nath Kovind signed the ordinance to tackle air pollution and to monitor and improve air quality in Delhi-NCR

Solicitor-General Tushar Mehta: We have come out with a law, the ordinance is promulgated today.

CJI: we would like to look at ordinance before passing any order. Even the petitioners would like to see. Let's hear it next Friday
Senior Adv Vikas Singh: The situation will get worse by next week

CJI: we will hear you Mr Singh and the Solicitor General too and look at the points made by you. This is not an adversarial litigation
CJI: if any of the parties here fall sick because of #airpollution till next date then you are solely responsible.

SG: What falls from you is mandamus !

CJI: ensure no one falls sick due to #airpollution

CJI: some experts have informed us informally that its not only stubble burning that creates pollution. All of you should also stop using the beautiful cars. All of you start using bicycles now.

Matter to be heard next Friday.
