"Khattar ji called. He is in Del till tomo". Says he is very busy and can't meet me. He has asked me to come to Chandigarh on Wednesday.

"You tell me, what is the point of meeting him, when the solution to the current crisis does not lie in his or my hands?"

Days after his verbal spar with Captain Amarinder Singh on Twitter, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has once again used the microblogging website to ask the Punjab CM for a meeting in Chandigarh and discuss ways to resolve the issue of the national capital's dangerously poor air quality.

Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh has been rejecting Kejriwal's appeals for a meeting to address the issue of crop burning.

Shell Reduces Its Interest In Woodside

Acknowledging the dire consequences that continued exposure to peaking levels of air pollution would visit on the public, including schoolchildren, a Bench led by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra said long-term preventive measures should be taken to end this life-threatening situation caused by stubble burning and dust from construction activities. "What steps have been taken to keep them from stubble burning?".

The Haryana CM's letter was in response to a November 8 letter by Kejriwal, in which he had sought time from Khattar to discuss stubble burning. "Such collective problems require everyone to do their bit". "And more importantly, a strong mechanism is needed to enhance the outcome of such constructive steps", wrote Khattar.

"Unfortunately, your letter contains no hint of such a mind set. In fact, your reference to the helplessness of farmers in Punjab and Haryana in stubble burning betrays an inability to rise above short-term electoral interests", he said. Khattar also claimed that satellite imagery shows a reduction in stubble burning in Haryana since 2014.

The development comes after Khattar wrote back to Kejriwal and said he was "likely" to be in Delhi on November 13 and 14.
