Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry has offered a scientific solution to tackle smog on both sides of the eastern border.
The minister, in a tweet, said that crop burning in the city of Jalandhar in India is wreaking havoc on both sides of the border, adding toxicity in the air and making it difficult to breathe in.
Crop burning in Jallender is playing havoc with environment on both sides of Punjab border, We can help Indian Punjb Govt to use a machine solution to turn crop waste into a burning billet, that can be used as fuel when needed #Sciencehelps

Fawad Chaudhry has offered Indian Punjab’s government to acquire a machine from Pakistan to convert the excess crop waste into a burning billet which can then be used as fuel if required.
While there’s little to no chance that India will listen to what Pakistan Science Minister has to say, it does provide a solution to one of the most dangerous problems in Pakistan and India right now.
