Odd-Even A "Publicity Stunt" By Kejriwal, Alleges Vijay Goel

Senior BJP leader Vijay Goel today said he will violate the odd-even rule on Monday as a mark of protest against the scheme, which he alleged is a "publicity stunt" by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
"Taxpayers' money is being spent every day on publicizing Kejriwal's photos. If he is so convinced about the scheme, then why spend crores of rupees on publicity and not implement it permanently at one go?" Goel said in a statement.
The Delhi government's odd even scheme is all about "maximum publicity, minimum effect", the Rajya Sabha MP said. Goel alleged that the taxpayers' money was not only being "misused" on "ridiculous" advertisements in Delhi, but also to "publicize" Kejriwal's image in other states for "political gains".
"AAP leaders are using their tax money for cheap publicity. AAP cannot fool people for long and eventually, they will realise that the city needs sustainable solutions to the problems of pollution and traffic congestion," he said.
Delhi BJP too has criticised the scheme with its president Satish Upadhyay claiming that the odd-even rule was not being followed "willfully" by the people as claimed by the AAP government.
"If Delhi government is so confident of co-operation of people, it should withdraw the threat of Rs 2,000 challan and then see the results," he said.
