On governments decision to implement odd-even scheme after Diwali, the Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee on Friday said it was a tactic to divert the attention of people from the problem of pollution with temporary measures.
DPCC working committee president Haroon Yusuf said, Mr. Kejriwal [Chief Minister] thinks like a magician, he can wave his wand to create illusions...he can remove pollution and traffic problems by bringing back the odd-even scheme...but these are not the answers to pollution issues.
He added that Mr. Kejriwal has been squandering the taxpayers money to put out advertisements in newspapers that pollution levels in the Capital have been reduced by 25% but is calling for another odd-even scheme.
This means that the government has been wasting the public money for Mr. Kejriwals personal publicity. The government had promised that 1,400-km PWD roads in Delhi will be cleaned by mechanical sweepers and water will be sprinkled on it but the people of Delhi are yet to see these measures, Mr. Yusuf said.
