The plea had raised concerns that the mobilisation of one lakh motorbikes for Shah's rally would lead to air pollution. However, the Haryana government sought to assure the Tribunal that the district administration, Jind, and state pollution control board had taken adequate measures to curb air pollution and noise pollution arising out of the mobilisation for the rally. The plea had said that the use of one lakh motorbikes would lead to air pollution in the district. The Haryana government said that as a measure to prevent air pollution from re-suspended dust particles, all major roads and direct roads around rally area will be sprinkled with water. State pollution control board would also measure ambient noise pollution before, during and after the rally, the state government said in its response.
