, 2:56 PM IST

BJP’s parliament member and Bollywood actor Paresh Rawal on Monday apologised to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for violating the odd-even motor vehicles scheme and said it was a “serious blunder”.

“Made a serious blunder… Sorry to Arvind ji and Delhiites,” the Bharatiya Janata Party MP tweeted, after he was fined over breaking the rule.

Rawal travelled to parliament in his personal car with an even number plate but Monday being an odd number date, vehicles only with odd number plates were allowed to ply on the roads in the national capital.

The Delhi government had also announced a special DTC bus service for MPs to reach parliament that resumed its budget session from Monday.

Delhi Traffic Police had challaned more than 500 people for violating the rule during the first five hours of implementing the second phase. The odd-even restrictions applies to Delhi’s chief minister and ministers also. A helpline has also been launched.
