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.

People living in Delhi can now avail 30 more services at their doorstep, including adding members in ration card, paying the motor vehicle tax and getting a DTC pass, taking the total number of such services to 70. The second phase of the doorstep delivery of public services, the official launch of which is yet to take place, has been rolled out.

Residents can dial 1076 and get the service by paying Rs 50 extra, an official from Delhi’s Administrative Reforms told IANS. The new services include booking a tour package through Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corp.

In September 2018, the Delhi government had launched the doorstep delivery of 40 public services to make things easy for the common man. In the first phase, people got certificates of marriage, caste, domicile, income, births and deaths among others at their doors.

Driving license, new water or sewer connection and disconnection were also provided under the scheme which functions between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. through a ‘Mobile Sahayak’. The government had planned to roll out more services by February but they got delayed.

“Once the second phase is on track, steps to start the third phase will be initiated,” the official said. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has plans to have at least 100 services delivered at people’s doorsteps, the official said.

Aam Aadmi Party leader Atishi told IANS: “The plan initially was to take things online but we realised that people find it more easy to call a number and get the services instead of doing things online.” The tenure of the Kejriwal government will end on February 2020. (IANS)
