The Bharatiya Janata Party spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla tweeted this morning about the rise in air pollution level in Delhi.

He tweeted, "This year 13,873 stubble burning incidents have taken place in Punjab (33.5% increase) while Haryana has seen a 33% dip. AQI is crossing 500! Last nite it dipped to 700!! Part Time CM KEJRIWAL has made Delhi a Gas chamber by failing on Punjab stubble/Vehicle pollution!"

BJP Social Media chief Amit Malviya also criticized the Delhi government for the poor air quality in Delhi.

Malviya in a tweet wrote, "Delhi is a gas chamber right now. The AQI is three times worse than what it was last year at the same time. The reason is unabated farm fires in Punjab, a state run by the AAP. Arvind Kejriwal has failed both Punjab and Delhi. This is free death, which Kejriwal doesn't advertise."
