New Delhi : City BJP president Manoj Tiwari on Saturday wrote to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal urging him to reconsider the move to implement the odd-even system again as it would cause problems to the people.

This is merely a "gimmick to divert the attention" of Delhiites from other important issues as the AAP government has "substantially failed" to deliver and wants to use taxpayers' money on advertisements for its own publicity,

The decision has been taken without a proper thought. This had created so many problems for Delhiites last time, he said. Kejriwal on Friday announced implementation of the odd-even system in Delhi from November 4 to 15, saying it will be one of the seven measures against high level of pollution in the city due to crop stubble burning in Haryana and Punjab during the period.

Tiwari said the AAP government's decision to stick to the odd-even system speaks volumes of its "inability" to come up with any scientific and reasonable measure to fight air pollution.

"In the interest of the people of Delhi, I urge you to rethink over this decision of implementing odd-even scheme and kindly spare Delhiites unnecessary hassles they would be subjected to with this move," Tiwari said in his letter.

Tiwari alleged the move was an "insult" to the law abiding citizens who get their vehicles regularly checked for pollution as they will face problems in commuting and dropping their children to schools.

The AAP government has targeted private vehicles although there is no scientific study to support that they are the biggest source of air pollution in Delhi, he said. As a matter of fact, the air pollution in Delhi has reduced by 25 per cent with the opening of the Eastern and Western Peripheral Expressways in Delhi, thanks to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari, Tiwari said.
