Hours after the National Green Tribunal gave its nod for the implementation of the odd-even plan with certain riders, now the Delhi government has called off the scheme which was supposed to come into force from November 13 to November 17 in the national capital. "This one measure you want to implement".
The government is not ready "to compromise with the safety of women" after the NGT ordered that there should be no exemption to anyone except emergency vehicles like ambulances and fire tenders, he said. The Delhi cabinet went into a huddle and reached a consensus that given the load it would put on Delhi's transport system and pose a threat to women's security, it would not be feasible to go ahead , As Reported By TOI.
The Tribunal disapproved all the exemptions that were given by the city government during the previous two phases of odd-even in January and April 2016.
"You have made a mess of Delhi".
"Prove whether the odd-even scheme reduced the pollution in the air or else we will stay the imposition of the scheme", it said.
Even as the NGT gave its go-ahead to Odd-Even, it observed that water sprinkling was a better way of curbing pollution.
