The Union Minister made a tweet regarding the increasing pollution and deteriorating air quality in Delhi. He wrote in his tweet that if we talk about today, there has been an increase of 19 percent in the incidents of setting fire to fields in Punjab, where AAP is in power. Whereas in Haryana a decline of 30.6% has been recorded in such incidents. Even today, a total of 3,634 incidents of setting fire to fields in Punjab have come to the fore. Now in such a situation it is clear that who is responsible for the condition of pollution in Delhi.

He alleged that in the last five years, the Center had given Rs 1347 crore to the Punjab government so that the state government could procure agricultural equipment. According to the information received by us, the state government has bought 1,20,000 machines, out of which 11,275 machines have gone missing, no trace of them has been found so far. The way the money given by the Center has been used, it clearly shows that all is not well.

Earlier, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal had accused the central government of doing politics in this matter, describing pollution as the problem of the whole of North India. He had put the ball in the PM’s court saying that the Prime Minister has to solve it.

In a conversation with reporters, Kejriwal had said, “Pollution is the problem of the whole of North India. Politics is being done on this and it is being shown that there is pollution only in Delhi and Punjab. Pollution is also in all the cities of Haryana, UP. And it is for the Prime Minister to solve it.

The central government is now abusing the farmers, daily letters are coming to Bhagwant Mann asking how many farmers have been FIR. Why are these people after farmers? On the issue of stubble, we sent a proposal to the Center that the farmers should be compensated together but the Center refused. The farmers had agitated against him and they are taking revenge for the same from the farmers. If nothing is happening with the central government, then they should resign. We’ll show it.”
