New Delhi: Expressing disappointment over BJP MP Vijay Goel’s move to violate the Odd-Even scheme, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said that one should not tamper with a move, which has received immense public support.
Kejriwal said the reports state that the people of Delhi are following the initiative very positively.
Responding to a poser about Goel being fined Rs. 3500 for violating the Odd-Even scheme, Kejriwal said “Vijay Goel ji was driving without license.This is a very dangerous thing.”
He further congratulated the people of Delhi for the success of Odd-Even formula.
“The people have voluntarily come forward and are participating in the Odd-Even programme,” he added.
Earlier in the day, Goel violated the Odd-Even scheme as a mark of protest following which he was penalised by the traffic police.
“I don’t oppose the Odd-Even scheme rather I oppose the amount of public money being used by the Kejriwal government to advertise it. If they remove those advertisements, I won’t protest with regard to this scheme,” Goel told ANI.
Goel earlier met Transport Minister Gopal Rai during which the latter urged him to refrain from breaking the rule. (ANI)
