The city of Tehran and many other cities across the country in the Tehran, Central and Isfahan provinces have come to a standstill and ‘closed’ down due to severe air pollution, the state-run Khabar Online website reported.
Mullahs’ officials announced on Tuesday the air in Tehran, Isfahan and various other provinces are polluted and schools, universities and government offices will be closed down.
NCRI Environment Commission Chairman Karim Ghassim said in an interview with INTV: “The air pollution in Tehran has reached a very dangerous and lethal level. Even with schools and government offices being closed they say Tehran’s air pollution will remain very dangerous. It has been 20 years that Tehran’s air pollution reaches dangerous levels but nothing is done about it by the mullahs’ regime.”
“Everyone knows such problems need a scientific approach to be resolved. However, Tehran’ deputy governor is outrageously calling on the people to go on vacation to help solve the problem! This is ridiculous. You can’t expect the population of a 12-13 million city to suddenly get and up and go on vacation. That is absurd.”
