New Delhi: Aimed at reducing pollution levels across the city, Delhi government’s Odd-Even plan kicks off on Friday.
The plan will run for an initial two-week trial period after which the government will take a call on extending it.
"I am truly overwhelmed by the response. People have achieved the impossible. I am sure Delhi will show the way," said Arvind Kejriwal.
He added, there were very few even-numbered cars on the road today. Shortly after the rule came into force, an even-numbered car was stopped at the major ITO intersection and the driver was fined.
Another tweet from the CM states “By and large people of Delhi have accepted this anti-pollution drive whole heartedly.”
Kejriwal, who has an odd-numbered car, carpooled with two ministers - Gopal Rai, the Transport Minister, and Health Minister Satyendar Jain.
He tweeted “Am pooling my car n going to office with 2 ministers, my PS and my Joint Secy.”
