“Even a fine of Rs 1 crore is less. We will get this money back anyway. We will tie their account if necessary. This (burning garbage in the open) is criminal,” Mr Chaddha said. The NDMC had recently asserted that this was the case. faced with the funds crisis because the Delhi government owed it money.
However, NDMC mayor Jai Prakash said he filed a complaint against the Aam Aadmi party for trying to defame the BJP.

Continuing his party’s attack on the governments of Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh for failing to control stubble burning, he said farm fires were “the main contributor to pollution in Delhi “.
“Last month the air quality was good. How is it that in a month it has become ‘very poor’. This is obviously due to the thatch burnt in Punjab and Haryana”, said tow group founder and chief minister Arvind Kejriwal. .
Mr Chaddha added that his party would also introduce an even-odd road rationing system if necessary.
The Delhi government recently launched the “Red Light On, Engine Off” campaign in an effort to prevent tons of vehicle emissions from being released into the air in Delhi which has been in the “poor” to “category. very poor “for last week.
