Chaudhary Pervaiz Elahi also ensured that schools are closed due to the increasing amount of smog and that all possible efforts are made to control the smog.
Yesterday Parvez Elahi has declared smog as a disaster and also said that he will take strict action to stop smog.
Along with this, the Chief Minister said that we have banned the burning of crop residue as it increases the level of smog and strict action will be taken against anyone who does not follow this order.
Chaudhary Parvez Elahi ordered the transport and industries to control smog, besides he said that the driver of any vehicle emitting smoke will be caught as it also increases the level of smog.
Last year on November 22, 2021, the government closed educational institutions for 3 days in a week because the smog was very high every year and the level has increased this year.
