New Delhi: Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra on Saturday slammed Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government’s move of exempting VIPs from the ‘Odd-Even Formula’ for vehicles that will ply in the city and those coming in from the National Capital Region (NCR) from January 1 to January 15, 2016.
Vadra, who was this year removed from the elite “no-frisking” list at domestic airports, on his Facebook account posted: “Odd and Even ways !! Creating parallel lists of exemption, is complete hypocrisy. If a law is implemented in the interest of the people, we all must adhere, and not be VIPs.”
The odd-even plan will be tried on a pilot basis for 15 days starting from January 1 and will apply between 8 am and 8 pm daily except on Sundays, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has said. It will also apply on vehicles entering Delhi from other states.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief on Thursday informed that the vehicles of the President, Vice President, Prime Minister, Speaker of Lok Sabha, Deputy Chairman of Rajya Sabha, Deputy Speaker of Lok Sabha, Governors of states/ Lt Governor, Chief Justice of India, Union Ministers, Leaders of Opposition in Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha, Chief Ministers of states except Delhi, judges of Supreme Court and High Court, Lokayukta will be exempted from the odd-even rule.
A fine of Rs 2,000 will be imposed for not following the odd-even formula.
