A Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader on Tuesday blamed Pakistan and China for the high levels of pollution in India.

The Indian lawmaker alleged that one of the two neighbouring countries are responsible for releasing poisonous gas in New Delhi, according to NDTV.

"I feel that Pakistan or China are afraid of us.

"We must seriously consider whether Pakistan has released any poisonous gas," BJP leader Vineet Agarwal Sharda said.

The leader claimed that Pakistan was 'frustrated' ever since Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah came into power, and were resorting to different tactics because "it could not register a single victory in any battle".

"Whenever Pakistan fought a war with India, it was defeated. Since PM Modi and Amit Shah came, Pakistan has become frustrated," the lawmaker said.
Referring to the two leaders PM Modi and Amit Shah as Lord Krishna and Arjuna from Mahabharata, the lawmaker said they were capable of solving all the problems India was facing.

"This is a time of Krishna and Arjuna. PM Modi as Krishna and Amit Shah as Arjuna together will take care of it," he said.

Air pollution in New Delhi and surrounding towns reached the worst levels so far this year, with authorities in the world’s most polluted capital city has already declared a public health emergency and ordered the closure of schools.
