Farmers In Punjab, UP Protest Against Fines On Stubble Burning

The air in Delhi turned toxic, as it does every year around this time, but many are still hazy about the causes. Fingers are being pointed at farmers in neighbouring Rajasthan, Punjab, Haryana, and Uttar Pradesh with the burning of agricultural waste, or stubble, identified as a key source of the pollution. As a mark of protest, farmers in Punjab and Uttar Pradesh went on a stubble-burning spree. They say they are angry that the administration is only levying fines on them and is not trying to find a viable solution to the problem.
