Will give roses to protest odd-even scheme: BJP leader

New Delhi, April 20 (IANS) Former Delhi BJP chief Vijay Goel on Wednesday said he would continue to protest against the odd-even scheme in the national capital, albeit in a different way.

Taking a leaf out of ‘gandhigiri’, he said he will present roses to AAP legislators to register his protest.

Goel protested on Monday by violating the odd-even traffic system on Monday, for which he was issued a challen for Rs.2,000. He was also fined Rs.1,000 for not possessing insurance papers of his car and Rs.500 for not carrying a driver’s licence.

“The odd-even mechanism has only added to the citizen’s woes. A number of citizens and representatives of various NGOs, including Lok Abhiyan, will visit the residences of all 67 Aam Aadmi Party MLAs on April 22 and offer them roses along with the memorandums stating that the scheme was implemented without any groundwork,” Goel said in a statement here.

He said that if the scheme was implemented after proper preparation, it would have been a success.

The BJP leader said that volunteers supporting his stand on the issue will ride two-wheelers to the residences of AAP MLAs and offer them roses and “seek their cooperation” over the issue.

Goel said the Delhi government led by Arvind Kejriwal was confused over the odd-even scheme and huge public money was wasted in the process.

“The Kejriwal government is confused over the odd-even scheme. They are misleading the public and also wasting taxpayers’ money for self-publicity,” Goel said.

“Through this memorandum we will demand that Chief Minister Kejriwal should answer how much money was spent in the name odd-even scheme. We will highlight the plight of the people and also demand that corruption being indulged in in the name of the odd-even scheme should be stopped,” the BJP leader said.
