NEW DELHI: Along with the spiralling temperature in Delhi, political heat too rose on Saturday, with the AAP and the BJP locking horns over the implementation of the odd-even scheme in the national capital.
Lashing out at BJP MP Vijay Goel over his tweet saying he would violate the scheme to mark his protest, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said in a series of tweets, “The RSS and BJP want odd-even to fail but Delhi will fail BJP yet again. In January too, BJP tried to fail odd-even by orchestrating officers’ strike. People failed BJP and made odd-even success. BJP auto union calls strike. BJP wants odd- even to fail”.
Goel said the Kejriwal government was putting unnecessary pressure on the people without improving the public transport infrastructure and claimed “the revenue that is collected through taxes by the Delhi government is spent on advertisements and not on public transport infrastructure”.
