Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday asked his Punjab counterpart Amarinder Singh to meet him in Chandigarh over stubble burning by farmers leading to smog and pollution in the capital and surrounding areas.
"Captain Amarinder Singh Sir, I am coming to Chandigarh on Wednesday to meet Haryana CM (Manohar Lal Khattar). Would be grateful if you could spare some time to meet me. It is in collective interest," Kejriwal said in a tweet.
The Aam Aadmi Party's leader came a day after Khattar accepted his request for a meeting to discuss the issue of stubble burning.
Authorities have blamed stubble burning by farmers in Punjab and Haryana for the smog and air pollution in the National Capital Region, triggering serious health concerns.
