New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday accused
the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS)and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of trying to “fail” the Delhi government’s odd-even traffic scheme.
“BJP appeals people to break odd-even. BJP auto union calls strike. RSS and BJP want odd-even to fail but Delhi will fail BJP yet again,” Kejriwal tweeted.
In another tweet, Kejriwal said: “In January too, BJP tried to fail odd-even by orchestrating officers’ strike. People failed BJP and made odd-even success.”
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government of Delhi had on Friday kicked off the second phase of its odd-even scheme in the national capital. The opposition parties, however, did not back the plan and demanded improvement in the existing public transport facilities.
BJP’s Delhi unit president Satish Upadhyaya said the “unplanned” odd-even scheme was causing inconvenience to the citizens.
“It is the most unplanned scheme the government has come up with. The government has not worked on improving the public transportation system,” he said on Friday.
The odd-even vehicle movement plan for four-wheelers will continue till April 30 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. except on Sundays.
