Air pollution a health hazard

Smog is spread over the city's sky like a canopy which is caused by severe air pollution; it is so thick that it seems we can almost touch it. As no steps are being taken, the pollution is increasing day by day posing a threat to healthy living. Already a great number of people are suffering from a host of serious diseases related to air pollution. We are feeling deeply upset because if the matter does not get its due importance, we will be doomed, our nation will become a sick one with no future.
The government must start addressing the problem of environment pollution immediately.
It is very disappointing that our government is very busy with unnecessary things, not caring about people's views, suggestions and feelings. There are many instances of these, the recent one is splitting Dhaka city which in no way will be helpful.
In fact, it will create more chaos and inconvenience. We hoped that the government would drop the plan as it had done with DST(Daylight Saving Time), against which people were vocal and they thanked the government for giving back their old timing.
But this time the government is not giving a hoot to people's pleas, putting forward lame excuses.
