New Delhi: BJP MP Vijay Goel yesterday violated the odd-even scheme following which he was fined Rs 2,000 by the traffic police even as Delhi Transport Minister Gopal Rai visited his residence earlier requesting him to refrain from breaking rules by offering roses.
Goel was challaned near Raisina Road, on his way to Parliament. The BJP leader was also fined an additional R1,500 for driving without licence and vehicle insurance.
On Friday, Goel had announced that he would violate odd-even rules on Monday in protest against "huge expenditure" incurred by the AAP government on advertisements, regarding the scheme, for its "political posturing."
