While Delhi chief min­is­ter Arvind Ke­jri­wal is sin­cerely mak­ing ef­forts to pro­vide re­lief from smog, no one is will­ing to co­op­er­ate. The CMs of Pun­jab and Haryana are merely pass­ing the buck de­spite know­ing that the prob­lem erupted from their re­spec­tive states. With no one to help, Ke­jri­wal de­ployed fire brigades to sprin­kle wa­ter over field fires. Though the ex­er­cise brought some tem­po­rary re­lief, the ef­fort was not ap­pre­ci­ated. Why NGT has not amended the laws re­lated to air pol­lu­tion? Why are we still im­pos­ing fines on the ones caught burn­ing stub­ble in­stead of or­der­ing im­me­di­ate ar­rests? DS Thukral, Am­bala
