In Delhi, there is a great havoc of both corona and pollution at this time. To deal with this situation, the people of Delhi and the Government of Delhi are trying together. The situation of Corona is getting worse due to pollution. Every year there is pollution on these days, because the smoke of stubble burning comes towards Delhi.

Kejriwal said, the sad part is that due to stubble burning, this pollution is happening for the last several years, but those governments did not take any concrete steps for their farmers. I spoke to the farmers of those states and the farmers said that we do not want to burn the straw, burning the straw leaves bacteria in our soil. Our soil is less fertile due to burning of bacteria, but what solution do we have, our governments have not done anything for us.
CM Arvind Kejriwal said that the Delhi government has taken very good steps to solve the problem. The people of Delhi and the Government of Delhi together with the Pusa Institute have given a solution to the stubble that now there is no need to burn the straw. Pusa Institute has made a chemical, if spraying that chemical on the straw, then the straw is converted into compost within about 20 days. CM Arvind Kejriwal said that the last time we had tasted not to burn crackers during Deepawali. This time too, all of us will celebrate Deepawali together, but will not burn crackers under any circumstances.
