New Delhi: In order to garner support and enlighten Delhiites, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has given an advertisement on the radio in which he indirectly justified his 'odd-even formula' for reducing the number of cars on the road of the national capital.
In his radio message CM said-" In Delhi pollution has increased to a considerable degree. We are breathing in toxic air and the biggest reason for this is cars running on roads."
"If we want to make our environment clean, we have to reduce the number of vehicles plying on the road", he added.
It is pertinent to mention here that Delhi government has recently launched 'odd-even formula' under which odd-numbered cars will be allowed to ply on Monday, Wednesday and Friday while even-numbered vehicles will run on the other days -- Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
However, all cars will be allowed to run on Sundays.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government's anti-pollution plan has been challenged in Delhi High Court.
