Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday tweeted his Punjab counterpart Amarinder Singh seeking an appointment to talk about the pollution situation in Delhi.
Kejriwal said he is going to Chandigarh to meet Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar. The Delhi CM has often blamed stubble burning in neighbouring states of Haryana and Punjab for the aggravating air pollution in the national capital.
The national capital woke up to a moderate foggy Tuesday morning with the minimum temperature settling at 14.6 degrees Celsius, a notch above the season’s average, the Met office said.
At least 118 trains delayed, 34 rescheduled and 10 were cancelled due to the shallow fog in northern India. “There was modetate fog on Tuesday morning. The sky will remain mainly clear during the day,” an official of the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said. The humidity at 8.30 a.m. was 84 per cent and visibility was 1,000 metres.
