New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has said he will be happy if dissident AAP leaders Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan return to the party.
“Agaraisa hua to bahut achcha hoga (If it happens, it will be very good),” the Aam Aadmi Party leader told India Today news channel. “Their return will be good for the party,” he added, denying allegations that his dictatorial attitude prevents their return.
Both Yadav and Bhushan were removed from the AAP in April for alleged anti-party activities following an acrimonious two-month-long war of words between the founding members of the party and Kejriwal backers.
Since then, Yadav and Bhushan have publicly accused Kejriwal of being intolerant of dissenting voices.
The two later launched a “Swaraj Abhiyaan” campaign to force the AAP to return to what they say were its foundational ideals. (IANS)
Soon after Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday announced that the Odd-Even scheme will be back between November 4 and 15, several memes, jokes and videos with #oddeven hashtag have gone viral on social media such as Twitter.
Twitterati shared funny reactions and jokes on the scheme’s comeback.
Here are some of the funniest posts:
A Twitter user named @sagarcasm tweeted: “I don’t think Arvind Kejriwal and Piyush Goyal get along very well. Kejriwal loves doing Odd-Even and Goyal hates maths. #OddEven.”
“I’m not following this ridiculous #OddEven. Fine me, arrest me. There, I said it. @ArvindKejriwal, you ignorant, lazy, freak – vehicular emissions barely scratch the surface of the ocean causing air pollution,” a woman with username @MeherunissaA tweeted.
Another person shared a picture of Bollywood actor Jimmy Sheirgill with his popular movie dialogue ‘Humko Ghanta Faraq Nahi Padta’ and also wrote with caption: “Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced that the #OddEven scheme for vehicles will be implemented in Delhi from 4 to 15 November. People who go on metros – #OddEven.”
“#oddeven #SayItLikeNirmalaTai #BoycottMillenials #BoycottMillennials, everyone freaking out with traffic fines and odd even. *Le me*, a millennial destroying economy taking odd/even numbered Uber/Ola,” another user tweeted.
“Delhites, get ready to welcome #oddeven #evenodd once again..this time from 4-15 Nov. @ArvindKejriwal, instead of finding a solution to crop burning and stopping it, its so easy to make us suffer, right? We don’t mind any PLANS to curb stub burning?” another tweet read.
Kejriwal said the Odd-Even scheme was aimed at combating high-levels of air pollution in winters due to crop burning in neighbouring states. (IANS)
