Odd-even: BJP, AAP slam Vadra’s comments

New Delhi: Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra on Saturday criticised the Delhi government’s move to spare VIPs from the odd-even vehicle scheme, terming the move as a “complete hypocrisy”. His remark drew criticism from the BJP and the AAP.

“Odd and Even ways!! Creating parallel lists of exemption is complete hypocrisy,” Vadra posted in Facebook.

“If a law is implemented in the interest of the people, we all must adhere, and not be VIPs,” he added.

Reacting to Vadra’s comment, BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli said: “What an irony. Robert Vadra all his life took privileges for not being an ordinary citizen and he is making a comment about exemptions. I think it is an irony and it raises more questions about him.”

Attacking Vadra for his remark, Aam Aadmi Party spokesperson Ashutosh told media: “He is a symbol of hypocrisy. Robert Vadra has no right to speak on this subject like this because he himself is a VIP without a reason. He has been a celebrity all his life and enjoyed being a VIP.”

The Delhi government on Thursday announced the modalities of its ambitious traffic rationing scheme to battle record pollution levels in the city. The odd-even formula will be tried on a pilot basis for 15 days starting on January 1.(IANS)(image courtesy: bravejournal.in)
