Farmers in Punjab's Bathinda have started burning stubble, saying that they are not being provided with a 50 per cent subsidy as directed by the state government in September. Speaking to ANI, Ram Singh, a farmer said, "We were not left with any choice rather than burning stubble because the state government has not provided us with 50 per cent subsidy announced in September. We have spent around Rs 5,000-6,000 for burning this stubble on our own and the state government has not given any compensation". Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has repeatedly blamed stubble burning in the states of Punjab and Haryana for the air pollution in the national capital. (Video Credit: ANI)
