The move that Delhi Government has taken to curb the growing percentage of air pollution in the city under the strong leadership of Mr. Arvind Kejriwal has foreseen a bag of mixed reactions by the residents.
The Government has proposed that from January 1, the private vehicles with odd and even registration numbers in Delhi will be allowed on roads on alternate days. This means per car will drive every alternate day through which the pollution can be controlled.
While a lot of people showed appreciation on the initiative there are lot who showed rejection. Listed below are some of the reactions by the people.
Delhi Govt decides that from 1st Jan 2016, private vehicles with odd number plates & even number plates are to ply on alternate days.

Fighting pollution is not about whether @ArvindKejriwal can deliver. It’s a fight where all our lives are at stake. Don’t politicise battle.

I hope odd and even numbers on alternate days in Delhi doesn’t mean people buy second cars! Or fake license plates! https://t.co/QHQ52ivano
