    Rising pollution level at Delhi… Members voicing their concern… seeking to conduct parliament session in winter at Chennai…

    Will South India, more particularly Chennai have this privilege…..?

    Delhi too polluted, shift Parliament session to south India says AIADMK MP



    'The Session may be shifted to southern part of our nation so that our northern friends can come to South India and enjoy food and climate which is free from pollution', the MP said

    New Delhi’s alarming pollution levels appears to be suffocating the political class. AIADMK’s Rajya Sabha MP Navaneethkrishnan on Thursday demanded that Parliament session be shifted to the south, declaring the capital is not fit for human inhabitation.
    “Everyone is living in fear in Delhi. It has become a gas chamber and is no longer fit for human inhabitation,” said Navaneethakrishnan.

    The AIADMK MP’s statement was made during a debate in the Rajya Sabha on New Delhi’s pollution levels.

    Stating that it is a Constitutional right to have a life free of pollution, Navaneethakrishnan said, “Article 48A of the Constitution says that the state shall endeavour to protect and improve the environment, and safeguard the forests and wildlife of the country. Though it is in a chapter of directive principles, thanks to the recent Supreme Court judgment, it is an enforceable right.”

    This is a practical suggestion, deserves serious consideration. Delhi is unsuited for functioning as National Capital. It is by historical accident Delhi became a Capital. Even during British period the first Capital was Calcutta. This city situated in a corner of the Country, unsuited for capital of the Country.

    There are quite a few good metropolitan Cities in South that can be considered for shifting the Capital of this sprawling Nation. Hyderabad is one such places. This city is selected to function as place of residence for the President during Summer. This city has all the infrastructure to be a Capital. Otherwise Nagpur situated in the center of the Nation can be considered, but its unfriendly weather during summer is a deterrent for Capital.
    The suggestion of AIADMK member is good.

    You are right sir.

    The following article throws more light on the issue:


    Relocating India’s capital




    here are advantages to a new location in the centre of the country. Better security and a smaller population, for starters

    In 1911, the British moved their capital from Kolkata to Delhi. Later, New Delhi was carved out of Delhi. Today, the national capital region of Delhi is one of the most congested places in the world. From a population in 1911 of 2,40,000, it now exceeds 2 crore. ave a population greater than that of New Delhi.

    To this high density of population and its damaging consequences especially in maintaining law and order, we must add rainy season woes, lack of adequate public transport and public sanitation, traffic snarls, and dangerous levels of pollution. Property and food prices are sky-high.

    Strikes, protests and dharnas have become a part of life in this city. Being the seat of India’s President, Prime Minister and Parliament, and their ubiquitous offices, the space left for Delhiites is limited. And, now there is a report that the Centre is considering constructing a new office complex near Ghitorni in South Delhi, adding further to its congestion.

    The woeful story of New Delhi does not end here. The presence of such a large number of government offices, both of the Centre and of the State, requires an equally humongous intelligence and security structure. The ever-present threat of terror is high because of the presence of these authorities and other dignitaries. How long and to what extent can New Delhi survive all this?

    Mathematical centre


    Therefore, we must search for a new place to be made the capital of India. Mathematics being a perfect science, any solution arrived at with the help of mathematical concepts will surely give a non-controversial solution. One such concept is the centroid. The centroid of a body is the centre of its mass, the point at which it is stable or balanced under the influence of gravity from any side. The centroid of the map of India falls somewhere south of Jabalpur on the banks of River Narmada and near the Tropic of Cancer. We can think of moving the capital to this area.
