How stubble burning is the biggest culprit for poor air quality in Delhi. A ground report from Haryana & Punjab

Would be grateful if you could spare sometime to meet me.

Even as Delhi continues to reel under worsening air pollution, its Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who with great difficulty seems to have fixed a meeting with his Haryana counterpart Manohar Lal Khattar, has now has now asked the Punjab CM Amarinder Singh to meet him to discuss the Delhi pollution. The air quality deteriorated on Monday after marginally improving over the weekend. "I have been seeking a meeting with both Haryana and Punjab chief ministers since yesterday, but I have not received any response", Kejriwal had said. Earlier, Khattar shared on his Twitter handle a letter he had written to Kejriwal on November 10 in which he had expressed his willingness to meet the Delhi Chief Minister, and also blamed Kejriwal for his "inability to rise above short-term electoral interests". Kejriwal said the two governments had failed to provide farmers with viable alternatives to stubble burning.Hitting out at Kejriwal in a letter on Friday, the Haryana CM asked what steps he had taken to end stubble burning by farmers in the capital. Such collective problems require everyone to do their bit. ML Khattar also launched a scathing attack, saying what had Kejriwal done for "stubble burning over 40000 hectares of land in Delhi. We direct all the pollution control boards and departments concerned of Haryana, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan to ensure that there is no stubble burning anymore", NGT chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar said.

"Unfortunately, your letter contains no hint of such a mindset".
