Odd-Even formula: Delhi Police Commissioner asks AAP volunteers to 'act as told'

New Delhi: Announcing that the Delhi Police would enforce the Odd-Even formula in the national capital, Delhi Police Commissioner B S Bassi warned the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) volunteers to keep the idea of Rule of Law and Vigilantism at bay.

In a tweet, Bassi said that the Delhi Police would enforce `odd even' and requested the Delhi Government to ask its volunteers to assist the Delhi Police and `to act as told'.

'ALL NOTE: Rule of Law & Vigilantism are incompatible,' he added. The Delhi Police Commissioner further added that once volunteers reported to DP, `they shall be briefed and deployed as per an action plan. No undue harassment of road users is the objective'.

Bassi also added that the Odd-Even enforcement would rest on Delhi Police Traffic unit's 4 guiding pillars namely 'ERER - Education, Regulation, Enforcement and Road Engineering'. The scheme is being implemented for a period of 15 days from January 1, on trial basis to curb pollution in Delhi.

Violators of the scheme would attract a penalty of Rs. 2,000. VIPs, women drivers, CNG-certified vehicles, two-wheelers and those carrying the differently-abled are among the 25 categories which will be exempted from the scheme.
