"Punjab farmer helpless with 20 million ton of paddy straw," CM Amarinder

New Delhi, Nov 9: Punjab Chief Minister Capt.Amarinder Singh was not amused when Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal blamed Punjab for the poisonous smog enveloping the capital and NCR. Time and again it is being said that because of the stubble burning by farmers of Punjab there is a health emergency-like situation here.

Punjab CM responded thus, "Mr.Kejriwal is a peculiar person who has views on everything without understanding the situation. There is 20 million ton of paddy straw, where do I ask farmers to store? So Mr.Kejriwal doesn't understand this problem. 

He further added, "Have requested PM to convene meeting of CMs of affected states along with Union Ministers. Just my meeting with Delhi CM resolves nothing.

In the meantime the Odd-Even formula is back in Delhi.
