On April 18, former Delhi BJP chief Vijay Goel violated the odd-even traffic system, for which he was issued a challan for Rs 2,000. He was also fined Rs 1,000 for not possessing insurance papers of his car and Rs 500 for not carrying a driver’s licence.

Goel has said that he would continue to protest against the odd-even scheme in the national capital, albeit in a different way. Taking a leaf out of ‘gandhigiri’, he said he will present roses to AAP legislators to register his protest.
When asked about if Haryana government is also planning to implement the odd-even scheme in Gurgaon, Khattar said:
Kejriwal government initiated the second phase of Odd-Even scheme in the capital on April 15. The fortnight-long scheme has been launched both to reduce air pollution and ease traffic congestion.
