Centre should assist Bihar for stubble management: Sushi Modi

Centre should assist Bihar for stubble management: Sushi Modi

Patna, Oct 14 (UNI) Bihar deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi today said that

the Centre should extend support to the state for stubble management on the

pattern of Punjab.

Speaking at an international conference on stubble management here, Mr Modi

said that the Centre had given assistance of Rs 1152 crore to Punjab, Haryana and

Delhi for two years to purchase machines for stubble management and it should

extend similar help to Bihar.

He said the problem of stubble burning could not be tackled through action

against the offenders alone but farmers should be provided market by encouraging

use of stubble in power plants, brick kilns, factory boilers and also use of it as

alternative fuel.

“Like in Punjab, photographs of stubble burning through remote sensing satellite

should be taken and also those informing authorities about it through mobile apps

should be encouraged,” he said.

The deputy chief minister said four crore tonnes of stubble were burnt in Punjab,

Haryana and Uttar Pradesh last year adding 32 lakh tonnes of stubble were burnt

in Bihar also during the same period.

Air quality in Patna, Muzaffarpur and Gaya was largely affected after November

due to burning of stubble, he added.
