NEW DELHI: Punjab chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Thursday took a swipe at his Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal and said the AAP chief was a “peculiar man” with a habit of commenting on matters of which he had little understanding.

The two chief ministers have been engaged in a verbal sparring match after thick smog engulfed Delhi over the last few days, mainly precipitated by stubble burning in the neighbouring states of Punjab and Haryana.

“Mr Kejriwal is a peculiar person who has views on everything without understanding the situation. There is 20 million ton of paddy straw, where do I ask farmers to store? So Mr Kejriwal doesn’t understand this problem,” Capt Amarinder was quoted as saying by ANI.

While Kejriwal has been exhorting Amarinder (as well as Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar) to meet with him to discuss ways to resolve the issue of the capital’s dangerously poor air quality, the Punjab CM has reiterated that the matter requires the Centre’s intervention.

“(I) have requested PM to convene meeting of CMs of affected states along with Union Ministers. Just my meeting with Delhi CM resolves nothing,” the Congress leader said.

Earlier in the day, Kejriwal had said the Haryana, Punjab and Delhi governments should set politics aside and come together to devise a permanent solution to stubble burning which leads to high pollution every year.

“As the CM of Delhi, I am doing everything to deal with the situation. It is my responsibility to do everything I can to help my Delhi citizens… I have requested Punjab and Haryana CMs to help us in tackling this situation but I have not received any response,” he said at an event in the national capital.

The AAP chief also questioned competency of the ruling parties in Punjab and Haryana over their failure to crack down on the practice of stubble burning.

“Farmer in these states have been forced to burn the crops as the government there did not make adequate arrangements for them,” he charged.

Meanwhile, the AAP-led Delhi government has brought into force a slew of measures to curb the hazardous fog of toxic pollution cloaking the city since Tuesday. All ongoing construction work has been banned for the next two weeks, as has the entry of trucks and lorries into the national capital. The odd-even car rationing scheme will be implemented from November 13-17.
