New Delhi: German Ambassador to India Walter J. Lindner on Tuesday called on Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at the Delhi Secretariat here.

The Chief Minister also told the envoy that Delhi has been able to reduce the levels of air pollution by 25 per cent during last five years, but crop residue burning (stubble burning) during the months of October-November from the neighbouring states adversely impacts the air quality.
