Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has said about the issue of pollution that the Union Environment Minister should call a meeting of the Chief Minister of UP, Punjab, Delhi and Haryana. Kejriwal said in a digital press conference on Monday that “Deadline should be fixed to deal with the problem of stubble.” I think that if we work on a war footing, then in a year we can convert stubble into assets instead of liability. The Union Environment Minister should meet every month with the Chief Ministers of Punjab, Haryana, UP and Delhi.
Arvind Kejriwal said that “Pollution from starchy takes place all over North India.” More than Delhi, there is concern for those farmers who burn these stubble. The Delhi government is spraying in Delhi on an experiment in Pusa. This will make manure. A huge factory for making CNG from Parali has started in Karnal. The farmer gets money in this. There is no cost to the farmer. Gas also buys IGL. ”
He said that “seven coal-making factories are running in Punjab.” It sells coal to NTPC. Straw is made of cardboard. If all the governments together start doing such things that instead of burning stubble, they will be put in such a factory. How much will it benefit?
