New Delhi: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, on December 30, 2015 wrote a letter to the children of the city, wherein he had expressed his concerns regarding the inability of children of the city to play outdoors due to rising pollution. The letter was circulated in the media as well.

Now, a first year B.A. student, Gaurav Pandey, has written a letter addressed to the Chief Minister, wherein he has claimed that it is the lack of open spaces, not pollution that has prevented the children from playing outside. NewsGram brings you a copy of both the letters.
