The threat of developing diseases is on the rise due to the contamination of the atmosphere. It is our collective responsibility to ensure a clean environment.

Dr Vijay Singla, Punjab Health and Family Welfare and Medical Education and Research minister, stated this during a function held to celebrate World Health Day. He stated that the risk of developing diseases was increasing every day because of the contaminated environment. He urged people to take this as a challenge and work to create a safe and clean environment.

Dr Singla appealed for people to ride bicycles or take a bus to get to their destinations.

Dr Singla stated that the Punjabi people are migrating to India because they believe it is their collective duty to provide quality higher education, better living standards, and a clean environment for their future generations.
