Not just Indians, the Pakistanis too are finding it hard to deal with smog and Pakistan’s Punjab government has asked chief minister Amarinder Singh to quickly tackle this issue.

“We have imposed a ban on stubble burning in Punjab (Pakistan) & hope @capt_amarinder takes similar measures,” tweeted Pakistan’s Punjab government.

“Environmental hazards threaten our people and habitat. Let us act fast to counter it,” Pakistan's Punjab government said as it retweeted Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal’s comment.

Kejriwal had tweeted: “Am writing letters to CMs of Punjab and Haryana requesting them for a meeting to find solns to crop burning.”

For the past three days, a thick blanket of smog has enveloped Delhi and neighbouring areas, making it difficult to breathe. Many have fallen sick and hospitals are now dealing with an increase in number of patients who are complaining of breathlessness.

The Delhi government has decided to bring back  the odd-even formula under which  under which cars with licence plates ending in an odd number and even-number ply on alternate days. It will be in force from November 13-17.
