Odd-even scheme kicks off, CM says overwhelmed by response

New Delhi: Jan 1; "Overwhelmed" by the response of the people to the odd-even car rationing experiment, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today said that the pilot initiative of the AAP government has turned "into a movement".

Kejriwal's comments came two hours after the commencement of the radical scheme aimed at mitigating spiralling air pollution levels with the stipulation today that private cars bearing odd-registration plates will ply on city roads.

The Chief Minister said that as per initial reports, the plan has been "quite successful" and people in the national capital have largely accepted the restrictions "whole-heartedly".

"I repeatedly said that the scheme will meet with success only when people embrace it and not though force. It has become a movement and we are truly overwhelmed by the response we have received so far. Delhi will show way to the rest of the country," Kejriwal told reporters outside his residence.
