The debate on ‘Air Pollution and Climate Change’ is going to roll on for the third consecutive day. This is claimed, so as Mr Prakash Javadekar, Honourable Environment Minister, is expected to have his say during the debate. A day prior, members of Lok Sabha from different political parties had to claim that the stubble burning can’t be the only reason behind the growing level of air pollution across Delhi. The thus urged the government to offer incentives for the farmers, enabling them to dispose of stubble more safely.
Focus on the alternatives
Different members of Lok Sabha from various political parties had different suggestions. Some of them had to suggest that the least support value should be provided on products like Pearl Millet (Bajra in Hindi), Sunflower, etc. The reason behind this is said to be the fact that post-harvesting these products don’t leave stubble. On the other hand, stubble burning has been found out to be the prime reason behind the growing level of air pollution in the national capital.
Shashi Tharoor, a Congress MP, had to say that the government should go through a proper legislative way regarding the execution of the clean air programs undertaken at the national level.
The discussion on ‘Air Pollution and Climate Change’ is quite expected to be extended for the most important session as the Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar would respond regarding the matter. Member of Parliament from Aam Aadmi Party Mr Bhagwant Mannhad had to say that the farmers should not be targeted alone for the stubble burning. Similar was the opinion as well on the matter of Anupriya Patel, the Apna Dal leader. However, they both agreed that stubble burning is one of the prominent reasons behind the growing level of air pollution in Delhi. Both Mann and Patel demanded that the farmers should be inspired by growing crops that don’t leave stubble.
