The Pakistan government's tweet came in a reply to Kejriwal's tweet where he urged Singh for an "emergency" interstate meet and blamed crop burning in Punjab for the major cause of smog in the national capital and to find a solution to the issue. "Until the state governments don't find economically viable solutions to crop burning, it will not stop".

The Delhi government has directed schools to stay shut till Sunday and brought back the odd-even traffic rationing arrangement to cut the number of cars on the roads. "All of us need to keep politics aside and work together to tackle this huge problem of pollution", he added.
