The minister, who dispatched the water tankers outside the Delhi Secretariat, said that despite the ban on crackers this time, people engaged in bursting fireworks leading to an increased level of pollution in the city post-Diwali. However, crackers are not the only cause behind the worsening air quality in the city, Rai noted, adding that incidents of stubble burning in Punjab and Haryana actually increased this year on Diwali. As a matter of fact, as many as 3,500 incidents of stubble burning were reported in the neighbouring states on Friday, while around 4,000 were reported on Saturday, he added.,best fantasy cricket app
