LG of Delhi expressed his views in three posts one after the other on social media platform X on Thursday. He wrote, ‘We cannot do much about the smoke coming from crop burning in other states, except to request them. Despite the negligence of the states, especially Punjab, we are petitioners for mercy. AQI is still around 400 due to which the capital is gasping. Along with his post, LG also shared a news clip in which it has been said that there is talk of stubble burning in Punjab.
Kejriwal government also attacked

LG said that the lives of the people of Delhi cannot be put at risk for this. In another tweet, he said, ‘After the implementation of CNG in Delhi and construction of flyovers, nothing concrete was done. Delhi needs action, not just show off. We can achieve the target within a given deadline. Let’s do that. Politics can wait.
