[Chd,Pb]Capt Ridiculed Kejriwal’s Allegation On Stubble Burning in Pb
Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has ridiculed the nonsensical claim of his Delhi counterpart asking the AAP leader to stop indulging in political theatrics and to check out the facts before shooting from his mouth.Capt said that the data clearly indicated that Kejriwal’s government in Delhi had failed completely in addressing the problem of pollution in the national capital, said Captain Amarinder Singh, adding that the Delhi Chief Minister was, quite obviously, hunting for scapegoats to put the blame for his own failures.
Taking a dig at Kejriwal for his preposterous logic that the satellite pictures of stubble burning in Punjab was proof of it being the primary cause of the Delhi’s severe pollution, Captain Amarinder Singh said even a school kid would know better. “Can he (Kejriwal) really be an IIT graduate?”
Captain Amarinder Singh demolished Kejriwal’s illogical and ridiculous claim with recorded factual data, and warned that the people of Punjab would not take politely to the AAP leader’s attempts to pin the blame for his own failures on their state.
To begin with, the Punjab Chief Minister pointed out that the Air Quality Index (AQI) of Delhi remains more than 300+ even during December and January every year, when there is no stubble burning in the neighboring States. This clearly indicates that the New Delhi environment is impacted by its own sources within Delhi, which are predominantly vehicular emission, construction activities, industrial activities, power plants, burning of Municipal Solid Waste and sweeping activities,
Further, Captain Amarinder Singh pointed out that as per the latest report of air pollution forecast by Weather Research and Forecasting Model of the India Meteorological Department, winds over Delhi-NCR had changed from north-westerly to easterly, so there was hardly any influence from crop fires in Punjab and Haryana. Yet, Delhi’s air quality continued to be “very Poor”, with an average PM2.5 concentrations of 208 micrograms per cubic meters on 2nd November, which was caused mainly from local vehicular and industrial emissions.
What is more, the increase in the concentration of PM2.5 due to stubble burning is proportionately less as compare to PM10. Thus, the contribution of stubble fire in the increase of PM2.5 is less, whereas, the Ambient Air Quality in Delhi witnesses an increase in the PM2.5 during the winter months, observed Captain Amarinder Singh.
Due to decrease in the temperature and wind velocity, the pollutants in the atmosphere are unable to disperse, which is the major cause of increase in the AQI at most places in north India. In particular, New Delhi AQI crosses the 400 mark due to high emissions from activities of a large population in a confined area of NCR and inversion phenomenon of the climate. During October 2018, the wind velocity became static and decreased to less than 2 KM/hr, Captain Amarinder Singh further pointed out, referring to available scientific data.
Captain Amarinder Singh asserted that had stubble burning been the reason for Ambient Air Quality deterioration then it should have impacted the air quality index of the cities of Punjab in the first place. However, it had been observed that the average AQI of Punjab during October, 2018 was 117, while the average AQI of Delhi hovered around 270. Most of the cities in Punjab have witness clear climate with long distance visibility, in sharp contrast to Delhi, he added.
As far as stubble burning incidents was concerned, he said that the number of such cases till 3rd November was 25394, against 30832 reported last year – clearly showing a decreasing trend. The number of fire incidents per lakh acres of area under paddy plantation is 390, which is very nominal. In fact, the number of fire incidents per village is less than 2 (considering the number of villages in Punjab is 12700), said Captain Amarinder Singh, adding that the State had been able to persuade 98% farmers not to practice the stubble burning.

AAP Ensures Punjab drug and corruption free whereas Bikram Singh Majithia Dares Kejriwal To Contest From Punjab
Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party convenor Arvind Kejriwal today promised to make Punjab free of drug and corruption if his party is elected to power in the state Assembly election early next year.
Kejriwal said that they will implement strategies to bring the state back on track and AAP will stop illegal mining, cable and transport mafia “thriving” under the “political patronage”.
He also said that if elected AAP government will also ensure severe punishment for the perpetrators involved in the sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib so that nobody can even think of repeating it in the future.
Kejriwal said that this border district has been ignored by the Akalis and the Congress since its formation but AAP will revive the industrial hub at Goindwal Sahib and Sheron sugarmill which will provide employment opportunities to the youth of this area.
Parkash Singh Badal government has failed to identify and punish the accused involved in the sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib,
Lashing out at Revenue Minister Bikram Singh Majithia, Badals and Punjab Congress chief Capt Amarinder Singh, Kejriwal said that all of them have a secret agreement on saving each other’s misdeeds.
He claimed that Badals have closed the corruption cases against Amarinder while the latter had approached Congress chairperson Sonia Gandhi to bail out Majithia from a CBI enquiry during the Congress regime at the Centre.
Had Amarinder not interfered, Majithia would have been behind the bars in multi-crore drug case, he said.
“But Aam Aadmi Party will put Bikram to jail and punish him for ruining the youth of Punjab by spreading drug trade,” he said.
Kejriwal said that God gave them a chance to serve the people of Delhi and within a short period of over one year, the health and education sectors have seen development at par with the private institutions.
Majithia dares Kejriwal to contest from his constituency
Punjab Minister Bikram Singh Majithia today challenged Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to fight the upcoming Assembly elections from his home turf of Majitha constituency.
“Instead of making someone a scapegoat, let Kejriwal fight from the constituency (Majitha),” the Minister told mediapersons after inaugurating a rural skill centre at Athwal village
Majithia said that that the AAP chief “day dreaming of gaining power in Punjab with fake promises as he made in Delhi”.
“Kejriwal is now exposed on various fronts for his lies and promising moon to the people. Kejriwal has made life of Delhi people miserable as his performance as Delhi chief minister is a big disaster,” he claimed.
“Kejriwal’s anti-Punjab stance has been exposed on the SYL and other significant interstate issues where he took stand against Punjab and back stabbed the people of Punjab,” he added.
The Punjab minister alleged that AAP was formed on the basis of ethics and principles but the party “has adopted all unethical means in ticket allotment (for Punjab polls) even ignoring their own volunteers”.
Minister Majithia has also tweeted attack On Arvind Kejriwal
Punjab Minister said
Arvind Kejriwal will now go to jail for sure. After this defeat in the court of law, I want to defeat him in the court of the people too
I can assert with humility that I have got charges framed against Crooked Kejriwal in the court of law despite his attempts to run away./6
[New Delhi]Dharna Expert Kejriwal to Hold 6 Rallies In BJP Ruled 3 States
Kejriwal to Hold Six Rallies against Demonetisation
The AAP today announced that it will organise six rallies across the nation, including one in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s constituency Varanasi, and raise questions on the alleged “Rs 8 lakh crore scam” related to it.
Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal will hold three rallies in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh starting from December 1 in Meerut, followed by a rally in Varanasi and Lucknow on December 8 and 18 respectively,
Modi has defeated Kejriwal from the Varanasi Lok Sabha seat in May 2014 by a massive margin of 3.37 lakh votes.
The rallies assume significance as UP goes to polls early next year.
AAP leader Ashish Khetan said.
On December 20, Kejriwal will hold a rally in Bhopal, followed by two more in Ranchi and Jaipur on December 22 and 23 respectively.
Notably, all three are BJP-ruled states.
[New Delhi] Kejriwal Seeks Centre’s Help To Tackle Pollution Menace
Pollution level breached the safe limit by over 17 times at places, prompting Chief Minister Arvind Kerjriwal to describe Delhi as a “gas chamber” and seek the Centre’s intervention.
Kejriwal appealed to people to minimise the use of private vehicles in view of the situation and switch to public transportation facilities.
The extent of pollution surpassed even the post-Diwali levels, while smog brought down visibility to around 200 metres across the city. Monitoring agencies recorded ‘severe’ quality air and advised people to avoid going outdoors.
Kejriwal told a press conference that the smog was mainly a product of raging farm fires in neighbouring Punjab and Haryana. Later, he raised the issue with Union Environment Minister Anil Dave in a meeting at the latter’s residence.
While the 24-hour average of respirable pollutants PM 2.5 and PM 10 was 355 and 482 micrograms per cubic metre respectively, real-time figures were alarmingly high.
Anand Vihar, for instance, recorded PM 10 level at 1,711 micrograms per cubic metre at 2 PM — around 17 times above the safe limit.
The safe limits of these ultrafine particles are 60 and 100 respectively.
Even the level of gaseous pollutants like NO2 violated the prescribed standards for human inhalation as per real-time readings.
Lt Governor Najeeb Jung has also called for a high-level meeting on Monday to take stock of the immediate, short-term and long term measures, in which he invited Kejriwal, health minister Satyendar Jain, environment minister Imran Hussain, the Delhi Chief Secretary, and representatives of Police and the civic bodies.
Kejriwal said vehicle restriction measures like ‘odd-even’ scheme will not be able to bring down the smog as initial studies suggest that the “large-scale” influx of pollutant-laden smoke from Punjab and Haryana has aggravated the situation.
He said the Delhi government has very few methods at its disposal and the Centre needs to intervene.
