Consider limiting odd-even formula for a week: HC tells Delhi government

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday asked the Aam Aadmi Party government whether it can limit plying of even and odd numbered vehicles in Delhi on alternative dates for 'a week' instead of the planned 15 days.

A division bench of Chief Justice G. Rohini and Justice Jayant Nath asked the government to produce the data on air pollution it has collected in a week during implementation of the odd-even scheme in national capital.

"Is it really necessary to have it for two weeks? Can't it be confined to eight days? Can you end it on Friday? People are facing inconvenience. Take instructions," the bench asked the government posting the matter for Friday.

The Delhi government has decided to allow odd-even scheme from January 1 for 15 days.

    Second Class Citizens ?If you live in any city other than Delhi , you are a second class citizen !At least , the Supreme Court of India seems to think so !What else can explain its deep concern for the health of Delhi-ites , while choosing to overlook the fact that Diesel Vehicle Pollution is equally damaging the lungs of the lesser beings, living in dozens of other cities ?Or does SC think that pollution related situation in these other cities has yet not reached a level of alarm ?
