BJP Criticizes AAP’s Pollution Blame Game: Delhi’s Air Quality Woes Continue

Published on

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has criticized the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for shifting blame onto BJP-ruled Haryana for the ‘severe’ pollution in Delhi. The BJP accused Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and AAP of engaging in “polluted politics,” attributing Delhi’s environmental woes to their actions.

AAP, which governs Delhi, recently claimed that stubble-burning incidents in AAP-ruled Punjab have significantly decreased by 50-67 percent. They also urged scrutiny of Haryana’s efforts to combat pollution, given its proximity to Delhi.

The BJP responded to these allegations, with Shehzad Poonawalla revealing that 3,000 stubble-burning incidents were reported in Punjab the previous day. Poonawalla criticized Arvind Kejriwal and AAP, holding them responsible for turning Delhi into a “gas chamber.” He questioned the effectiveness of AAP’s proposed solutions, including bio decomposers and machines for farmers.

Delhi BJP leader Harish Khurana emphasized the role of stubble burning in Punjab as a major contributor to Delhi’s pollution crisis.

On Monday, Delhi’s air quality remained in the ‘severe’ zone. The System of Air Quality Forecasting and Research (SAFAR-India) reported an Air Quality Index (AQI) of 488, up from 410 the previous day. To combat the pollution, authorities have implemented the final stage of the Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP), including a ban on diesel trucks, and encouraged government and private offices to have 50 percent of their employees work from home.

As Delhi grapples with worsening air quality, the blame game between political parties continues, leaving the city’s residents in distress.
