Odd-even: Vadra says VIP exemption hypocrisy; BJP, AAP slam him

New Delhi, Dec 26 (IANS) Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra on Saturday criticised the Delhi government’s move to spare VIPs from the odd-even vehicle scheme, terming the move “complete hypocrisy”. His remark attracted criticism from the BJP and the city’s ruling AAP.

“Odd and Even ways!! Creating parallel lists of exemption, is complete hypocrisy,” Vadra wrote in Facebook.

“If a law is implemented in the interest of the people, we all must adhere, and not be VIPs,” he added.

Reacting to Vadra’s comment, BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli said: “What an irony. Robert Vadra all his life took privileges for not being an ordinary citizen and he is making a comment about exemptions. I think it is an irony and it raises more questions about him.”

Attacking Vadra for his remark, Aam Aadmi Party spokesperson Ashutosh at a press conference said: “He is a symbol of hypocrisy. Robert Vadra has no right to speak on this subject like this because he himself is a VIP without a reason. He has been a celebrity all his life and enjoyed being a VIP.”

The Delhi government on Thursday announced the modalities of its ambitious traffic rationing scheme to battle record pollution levels in the city. The odd-even formula will be tried on a pilot basis for 15 days starting on January 1.
