Odd-even debate to hide failure on civic strike: BJP

The BJP has slammed the Arvind Kejriwal government’s Odd-Even scheme for road rationing saying it has become a facade to cover its nepotism, loot and administrative failure to prevent the civic strike.

The BJP said the two-day exercise of seeking public views on repeating the road rationing scheme was a waste of money and public transport should be improved before re-implementing the scheme.

Delhi BJP president Satish Upadhyay said, “Last month the government brought Odd-Even scheme to cover up the public outcry against the hefty MLA salary hike and now again they are raising the issue to cover up the failure to handle the civic strike problem.”

Leader of Opposition in Assembly Vijender Gupta said the AAP government seems to have no plan or vision for the city’s development.

“The Odd-Even scheme launched in a rush is a perfect example of the present government’s utter inefficiency in providing sustainable solutions in times of crises. Now the AAP government is going to the public to know their views on Odd-Even scheme, which they should have done much before the launch of the scheme,” said Gupta.

He said Chief Minister was once again playing the victim card by  attributing the AAP government’s failures to the BJP-led Centre.

Referring to the 12-day-old civic workers’ strike, Gupta said the Delhi government is only interested in creating a fuss. They have no regard for the Constitution and are only interested in pursuing their narrow political goals even at the cost of turning Delhi into a garbage dump.
