NEW DELHI: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday said in the proposed scheme of things to limit cars with odd and even numbers on alternate days, any car carrying a patient or being driven by single woman would be exempted.

Speaking after meeting union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Kejriwal said he received a positive response from the central government over the Delhi government's traffic controlling scheme. "He (home minister) said the central government and Delhi Police will cooperate," Kejriwal told reporters after the meeting.

Stating that the discussions included the point that certain exemptions would be required, he said: "If there is patient in a car it will be exempted, if a single woman is driving, it will also be exempted... If there is an emergency... He flagged out some issues and we said we will sort it. The response was positive." 

Kejriwal said he also discussed about the Delhi government's plan to put CCTV cameras across the city. "We said we want CCTV in whole Delhi, but for that we need help of Delhi Police because the feed will go to Delhi Police... we need police cooperation."

"We said there is nothing in the tussle (between Delhi police and government), we must sit together and chart a course," he said.
