New Delhi: Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal on Friday was happy to see the positive response of people towards the odd-even scheme in the capital.

“I am truly overwhelmed by the response we have received so far. There are very less even-numbered cars on the roads. The plan seems to have been successful,” he told.

He said the people of Delhi accepted the scheme “whole-heartedly,” adding “I am confident that in next five years people will show the way to rest of the country.”

“Delhi has done it! Reports so far very encouraging. Delhiites! You give me hope that you are capable of achieving big challenges,” Kejriwal said in a tweet.

“I am pooling my car and going to the office with two ministers, my personal secretary and my joint secretary,” he said.

Initiated by the Delhi government, this scheme that allows odd and even-numbered private vehicles on the city roads on alternate days aims at reducing air pollution levels in the national capital.

Odd-even formula is on trial from 1st to 15th January 2016. On the basis of these 15 days, a decision will be taken on whether to continue it or not. While there is a lot of confusion over the scheme, for now it seems to be working.

A huge crowd of fans — from every nook and corner of the city and NCR — waited for hours to catch a glimpse of megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who took to a stage at a south Delhi market on Friday with wife Jaya and daughter Shweta Bachchan.

The Bachchan family, minus Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, was here for the launch of a Kalyan Jewellers showroom at the South Extension market.

A stage was set up facing the main road, where people came out in large numbers to watch Bollywood’s “Shahenshah” and hear him say some words. Whether it was Noida, Gurugram or even Saharanpur, people travelled from various places to make the most of the chance.
