Vadra blasts relief for VIPs under  even-odd scheme

Criticising the Delhi Government’s decision to give exemptions to VIPs vehicles in its even-odd scheme, Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra on Saturday said all must adhere to the law.

However, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the BJP were quick to hit back him saying he should contribute to the government initiative instead of making comments.
“Odd and Even ways!! Creating parallel lists of exemption, is complete hypocrisy. If a law is implemented in the interest of the people, we all must adhere, and not be VIPs,” Vadra said in his Facebook post.

The Delhi government has come out with a scheme of allowing vehicles of even and odd numbers alternatively on national capital’s roads in its bid to control pollution, but has come out exemptions for VIPs.

The scheme, to be enforced from January 1, has evoked mixed reactions from the public, who fear the scheme may cause them problems while commuting.

The government has proposed a fine of Rs 2,000 for any violation. Reacting to Vadra’s criticism, the AAP said the Congress president's son-in-law is the biggest hypocrite.

“He is the biggest hypocrite and he is talking about hypocrisy. He should say what good or productive he has done for the society until now. Instead of commenting on the policy, it would be good if he makes any contribution,” AAP’s Delhi unit convenor Dilip Pandey said at a news conference here. Even the BJP also criticised Vadra. “So ironic, Robert Vadra used the special provisions offered to him all his life and now he talks about equal treatment? said BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli.
