In PM constituency, yoga in mask
On International Yoga Day, citizens from Varanasi came out in their air pollution masks to do yoga as a symbolic gesture to demand their right to breathe clean air. Varanasi and Kanpur were among the 14 Indian cities that figured in a list of 20 most polluted cities in the world. Last December, the AQI in Varanasi rose 20 times above safe levels, worse than Delhi.
