In a tweet on Friday night, Kejriwal wrote: “Proud of u Delhi. U give me confidence ‘Together, we can achieve anything’. 1st phase of Odd Even ends today. Will do again in improved form.”
…Kejriwal added, “Pollution did decline but the most visible effect (of odd-even) was the decongestion of roads. Roads were empty and travel time was halved. This gave people more time to live their lives. There were no more traffic jams to irritate them. Many people are saying this should continue. They are ready to put up with the inconveniences.” The Indian Express. Read it on delhiair.org.
