Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Thursday wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi asking him to convene a meeting of CMs affected by pollution. "Have requested PM to convene meeting of CMs of affected States along with Union Ministers.

He also also took a potshot at Arvind Kejriwal, terming him as a "peculiar person who has views on everything without understanding the situation". "Mr Kejriwal is a peculiar person who has views on everything without understanding the situation.

With the Delhi air quality dipping to dangerous levels and burning of paddy stubble in neighbouring states contributing to smog in the city, Kejriwal had sought an urgent meeting with Punjab counterpart Captain Amarinder Singh. He said a solution to smog can be found if the Centre, along with governments in Uttar Pradesh, Punjab and Haryana put politics aside and work together, adding that the situation in the NCR will not improve until state governments find economically viable solutions to crop burning. The government has also decided to bring back its ‘odd-even’ vehicle policy from November 13 to 17.
