The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is likely to appeal to the Air Quality Commission as well as the Supreme Court to take suo motu cognizance and lodge cases of criminal negligence against the chief ministers of Haryana and Punjab for stubble-burning activities taking place in their states, party spokesperson Atishi said on Tuesday.

Addressing a press conference, she said the people of the national capital are unable to breathe-in clean air due to stubble-burning in Punjab and Haryana. The pollution caused by stubble-burning has further weakened the lungs of people, which were already affected due to Covid-19, the Kalkaji MLA said.

"We want to appeal to the Air Quality Commission as well as the Supreme Court to take suo motu cognizance of the matter and file cases against the chief ministers of Haryana and Punjab. We demand that cases of criminal negligence must be filed against them. It is their criminal negligence because of which Delhi-NCR and the entire north India are suffering from a public health emergency," Atishi said.
