Stubble burning in Punjab continues amid Delhi’s dipping air quality

New Delhi: The stubble burning cases have been reported in a huge number from different regions of Punjab, causing severe harm to the air quality of National Capital Region (NCR).

The visuals from Bathinda’s Gehri Baghi village show farmers setting stubble on fire. This comes amid the national capital struggles to have improved air quality.

Delhi’s Dipping Air Quality 

The air quality of Delhi is in ‘very poor’ state on Thursday. Earlier in the morning, there were smoke and low visibility across the national capital.

Overall Air Quality Index (AQI) stands at 396, according to System of Air Quality & Weather Forecasting & Research.

Stubble Burning

Despite various policies and schemes by previous Congress government and current AAP regime, farmers claim that they are compelled to burn the remaining parts of their crops or the insects (pink worm) will affect their produce.

They claimed that last year they followed the government’s procedure but lost their produce. So they better burn the stubble this time.
