Twitter reacts to AAP ‘Odd, Even’ formula

New Delhi: In a bid to curb rising pollution, the AAP government on Friday decided that odd and even number vehicles will ply on alternate days in Delhi from January 1, official sources said.

The decision, taken at a meeting presided over by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, will not apply to CNG-driven buses, taxis and auto-rickshaws but will cover vehicles entering Delhi from other states too.

The Delhi High Court on Thursday said that living in Delhi was “akin to living in a gas chamber”, asking the central and city government to act strongly to curb pollution and present “comprehensive action” plans to combat it.

The Delhi government has also decided to shut down south Delhi’s Badarpur power plant, one of the coal-based plants of the NTPC. The government will also launch a web-based App which people can use to report about polluting vehicles in the capital.

On Twitter, however, Arvind Kejriwal government’s move to reduce pollution apparently received little support with the majority of the people reacting cynically, wondering how the authorities would execute the decision on the ground.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to AAP government’s ‘Odd-Even’ formula.
