BENGALURU: The Delhi government’s odd-even car plan and its decision to ban old diesel vehicles is an “invitation to corruption”, said former Delhi chief minister Sheila Dixit on Monday.
She told reporters that the odd-even rule would be very difficult to implement, considering the number of vehicles in Delhi. “One is very skeptical of the implementation part. Are there enough personnel to check number plates?” she asked. The traffic inflow from surrounding areas such as Noida should also be taken into account, she added.
Noting that the Delhi government had earlier proposed to ban all diesel vehicles and later decided to stop new registrations, she said the latest move would be encourage corruption. “He (Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal) is doing the very things that encourage corruption,” she said. She also attacked the Aam Aadmi Party saying it had failed to fulfil its promises like free water.
