Political war of words continues over Delhi pollution

In an exclusive conversation with Republic, BJP leader Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga said: “Arvind Kejriwal has turned Delhi into a gas chamber. People are dying from pollution but he is doing political tourism. Hitler was the one who turned his city into a gas chamber, now Arvind Kejriwal would be known for it. It has not provided decomposers to farmers in Punjab. Incidents of stubble burning are highest in Punjab. Residents of Delhi and adjacent areas are suffering from its failure to address the causes of pollution.”

“Government of Haryana has tackled the stubble burning issues. Now very less incidents are reported regarding Haryana stubble burning. Punjab and Haryana are neighboring states but the Punjab government has failed to address pollution issues. Chief Ministers of Delhi and Punjab are visiting Gujarat and Himachal these days,” Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga added.
