Delhi air pollution

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said he would meet his Haryana counterpart in Chandigarh on Wednesday to discuss rising air pollution levels in the national capital as the latter was too "busy" to meet him in Delhi. "I look forward to meeting him in Chandigarh", Mr Kejriwal tweeted.

Khattar said he was likely to be in Delhi on November 13 and 14.

Kejriwal has blamed the burning of crop stubble in neighbouring Haryana and Punjab for most of the pollution. The Delhi government has been asking for a joint meeting of the chief ministers of Haryana, Punjab and Delhi to find a solution to the air pollution that is choking Delhi and the rest of NCR for nearly two weeks.

"I write this in response to your letter dated November 8". "I am coming to Chandigarh on Wednesday to meet Haryana CM".

Christopher Plummer talks about replacing Kevin Spacey in Ridley Scott's new movie
In a amusing way it's starting all over again because it's going to be different, naturally", Plummer told Entertainment Tonight . Kevin is such a talented and a terrifically gifted actor, and it's so sad. "Although the situation is very sad", he added.


While Khattar said today he was open to meet Kejriwal "anytime anywhere" to find a solution to the issue, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh last week said the situation warranted Centre's intervention as it has inter-state implications.

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.

Finally, Kejriwal took to twitter to inform that his Haryana counterpart, who is now in Delhi, was busy and not be able to meet him during is two-day visit. ML Khattar also launched a scathing attack, saying what had Kejriwal done for "stubble burning over 40000 hectares of land in Delhi. Such collective problems require everyone to do their bit". "You may feel free to call me to fine tune a mutually convenient date, time and venue for the meeting".

The Delhi CM has earlier alleged that both Punjab and Haryana CMs have no time to discuss the crop burning issue.
