New Delhi: Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Monday took a poetic dig at Delhi’s smog situation, quoting lines from a Hindi film song, and questioned why everyone is indifferent to the issue.

“Seene me jalan, ankhon me tufan sa kyon hai, is sheher me har shaks pareshan sa kyon hai (What is the cause of this burning sensation in the heart and storm in the eyes? Why is everyone in this city troubled?)” Gandhi tweeted quoting the well-known ghazal from the 1978 Hindi movie ‘Gaman’, written by lyricist Shaharyar.

Gandhi, however, added one more line to the poem, and said: “Kya batayenge saheb, sab jankar anjan kyo hai (Could you tell, why everyone is pretending ignorance despite knowing all).”

He did not name any political party or leader in his comment.

He also shared the link to a news report on the Delhi smog crisis.

Delhi has been facing smog and “severe” pollution for days now, with doctors warning people against going outdoors.
