According to reports, a high-level meeting of Parliamentary Standing Committee of Urban Development on Delhi's deteriorating air quality was postponed on Friday after only four of the 30 invitees were turned up for the meeting.

Apart from East Delhi MP Gambhir, the commissioners of all three Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD), Vice-Chairman of DDA and Secretary/Joint Secretary of Environment did not turn up.

"The agenda for Friday's meeting of the Parliamentary Standing Committee was circulated a week back, which clearly stated that the objective was to discuss air pollution in Delhi-NCR. However, East Delhi MP Gautam Gambhir did not attend it," a tweet by Aam Aadmi Party said.

"Delhi is choking and Gambhir is busy enjoying in Indore," AAP said.

Hashtag #ShameOnGautamGambhir became one of the top trends in India on Friday. AAP then tore into Gambhir for "sitting in commentary box and enjoying" in Indore where the first Test match between India and Bangladesh is going on.

AAP also shared screengrabs of media reports to prove Gambhir had skipped the pollution meet.

Minutes later, Gambhir responded with a long letter, claiming his "work will speak for itself."

Meanwhile, Delhi became the most polluted major city in the world with an air quality index (AQI) of 527, as per data by Air Visual on the World AQI rankings, on Friday.
