NEW DELHI: Shehbaz Sharif, Chief Minister of Pakistan’s Punjab province and brother of former PM Nawaz Sharif, has written to Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh inviting him to join hands to tackle smog and pollution issue.

“You are aware since last year people of both Pakistani and Indian Punjabs have been facing the problem of smog during the months of October and November. This year the problem has aggravated,” reads the letter from Sharif.

“Let us join hands for securing a prosperous future for the people of our two provinces,” it further read.
Raveen Thukral,  Media Adviser to Captain Amarinder Singh, tweeted back, “Amarinder Singh is extremely concerned about the issue and is actively pursuing it with the Indian government.

He expects early resolution of the matter. He is, however, yet to receive the letter from Shehbaz Sharif.”
