Delhi Smog : Gopal Rai hits out at Center & Haryana government

Delhi Smog : Gopal Rai hits out at Center & Haryana government

On Monday, a very crucial meeting between Kejriwal and Khattar remained in limbo even after "I'm ready" response from both the parties. "I look forward to meeting him in Chandigarh on Wednesday (sic)", Kejriwal had tweeted on Monday night.

Earlier in the day, he said his office was constantly trying to fix a meeting with the Haryana chief minister. 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. "I believe that no single person, organisation, or government can improve the quality of air". Such collective problems require everyone to do their bit. "The situation is serious but Punjab helpless as problem is widespread & state has no money to compensate farmers for stubble management", Amarinder Singh replied to Kejriwal in a series of Tweet.

"Unfortunately, your letter contains no hint of such a mindset. We have also requested people burning stubble to not do so", Khattar said, alleging that Punjab is the bigger culprit.

The development comes after Khattar wrote back to Kejriwal and said he was "likely" to be in Delhi on November 13 and 14.

The petitioner lawyer has sought vacuum cleaning and sprinkling of the roads, fruitful use of the stubble instead of burning them, use of electricity-driven vehicles instead of those using costly fuels - diesel and petrol - contributing to pollution and focus on solar energy instead of thermal power plants.

A severe smog has enveloped Delhi and several other north Indian cities since November 7.

He said that satellite imagery data clearly showed substantial reduction in number of stubble burning cases in Haryana from 2014 onwards.

"You may feel free to call me to fine tune a mutually convenient date, time and venue for the meeting", Khattar had said in the letter.
