Make odd-even ‘permanent’, boxer Vijender Singh tells Kejriwal

New Delhi, April 1 (IANS) Olympic bronze medallist Vijender Singh on Friday urged Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to make the odd-even traffic scheme permanent to tackle pollution in the national capital.

Vijender, who has now become a professional boxer, met Kejriwal at the Delhi Secretariat here and congratulated him over the success of the odd-even formula in Delhi in the past and said it needed to be reintroduced.

“The odd-even (scheme) was a huge success and relief. It must be made permanent,” Singh said.

He also invited the chief minister to watch his professional boxing match slated to be held at the Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium here on June 11. Kejriwal accepted the invitation.

The next phase of the odd-even formula will be launched from April 15 to 30 in Delhi. It was last implemented in the national capital from January 1 to 15.

Under the scheme, four-wheelers with odd and even registration numbers can ply on alternate dates. CNG vehicles, ambulances and certain other categories are exempt from the scheme.
