Pakistan's Punjab Government Urges Amarinder Singh To Ban Stubble Burning

Arvind Kejriwal a peculiar person with views on everything without understanding Capt Amarinder Singh

Environmental hazards threaten our people and habitat. "It's national problem & we need to find a solution", she said. The tweet, which was in response to Mr Kejriwal's request to the chief ministers of Punjab and Haryana on Twitter for a meeting, also accompanied a link to their "medium/long term action plan to combat smog".

Kejriwal on Thursday have blamed stubble burning for the main cause of smog in the Delhi-NCR region and said solution can be found if politics are kept aside and everyone join hands to solve the issue. Talking about the hazardous practice of setting crop residue on fire that pushed the level of pollutants in Delhi, Mr Kejriwal said that "it's an economic problem and unless the governments find economically viable alternatives, this won't stop".

By the end of the current kharif procurement season, the five procurement agencies of the Punjab government and the central agency, Food Corporation of India, are expected to collectively procure 188 lakh tonnes of paddy, and the quantity of stubble that has come with the crop is expected to be 250 lakh tonnes. The Delhi government has directed schools to stay shut till Sunday and brought back the odd-even traffic rationing arrangement to cut the number of cars on the roads.

In a bid to encourage the use of public transport at the mayhem of risky smog, the Delhi government have made the use of public services free of cost.

And then there's the case of the locker room leaks , which still isn't over. "Whoever was anonymous, whoever said it is a coward". It could have went differently, but point blank, whoever said that is a coward. "I wouldn't say he lost the team".

Shatrughan Sinha, who is believed to be miffed by the BJP top brass for sidelining him, questioned why the government was not paying heed to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's suggestions to curb pollution in the national capital.

The national capital has been experiencing "severe" air quality under a blanket of thick haze, as pollution levels have breached the permissible standards by multiple times.

The Indian Medical Association (IMA) had already declared it a "public health emergency" and have urged the government to ban outdoor activities.
