New Delhi: Expressing his gratitude towards the people of Delhi for 'successful' implementation of Odd-Even scheme, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday said 'it would be implemented again, but in an improved form'.
"Proud of u Delhi. U give me confidence. Together, we can achieve anything. 1st phase of Odd Even ends today. Will do again in improved form," Kejriwal said in a tweet.
Chief Minister Kejriwal had today said that the air pollution levels came down and the national capital's streets cleared up during the "successful" 15-day odd-even scheme.
"I thank the media, people and judiciary for the success of the odd-even plan. We imposed a strict rule but the people of Delhi followed it," Kejriwal told a news conference.
The CM requested the people of Delhi to voluntarily continue with the scheme. "It is a question of our health, our children's health, our city."
Transport Minister Gopal Rai said 9,144 challans were issued during the odd-even scheme, a radical move by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Government to curb alarming pollution levels in Delhi.
Kejriwal further thanked Delhi High Court and Supreme Court judges who pooled cars to follow the odd-even scheme although they had been exempted from the plan.
