The noxious air hanging over India’s towns and cities kills more than 100,000 children under five every year, a damning study published on Wednesday for World Environment Day found.
India has repeatedly failed to address environmental concerns. Last year a UN report found 14 of the world’s 15 most polluted cities were Indian.
And despite calls to action against pollution around the globe, Indian politicians mostly side-stepped the issue in the last election.
