New Delhi: Amid the worsening situation of the air quality in the national capital, Union Environment minister Bhupender Yadav called Delhi a ‘gas chamber’ and further blamed the Aam Aadmi Party government on Wednesday.

Taking to Twitter, Bhupender Yadav shared a graphic and claimed that “Punjab, a state run by the AAP government, has seen an over 19% rise in farm fires over 2021. Haryana has seen a 30.6% drop.”

He further lashed out at the AAP-led Punjab government and added that ₹212 crores was left unspent. He further claimed that the “central government gave ₹280 crores for crop residue management machines. So about ₹492 crore was available but the state government chose to sit with funds forcing helpless farmers to burn the crop residue.”

He further added that “Scam is where AAP is. In the last 5 years, the Central Government gave Rs 1,347 crore for crop residue management machines to Punjab. The state bought 1,20,000 machines. 11,275 of those machines have gone missing.”

Bhupender Yadav also said that “The Chief Minister of Punjab has failed to even provide relief to farmers in his own turf of Sangrur. Last year (Sept 15-Nov 2) farm fires in Sangrur stood at 1,266. This year they have shot up by 139% rising to 3,025.”

Earlier today, the AQI in Delhi today was recorded at 354 which falls under the category of very poor.
