Stubble Burning Season Begins in Punjab
Today, on Thursday, news agency ANI released a video confirming that farmers in various villages of Punjab have started burning leftover paddy straw in their fields.
In one such instance, a field in the village of Daduana in Amritsar was observed ablaze with stubble burning.
It is anticipated that the smoke and pollutants released from these burnings will soon drift towards Delhi-NCR, exacerbating the already fragile air quality.
This situation, coupled with the pollution generated by Diwali fireworks, is likely to contribute to deteriorating air conditions in the region.
