Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal asks Twitter for a solution to an Odd Even problem. This happened

Speed News Desk | Updated on: 8 April 2016, 17:41 IST

Twitter is a strange place. In equal parts hilarious and terrifying, the 147-character world is the only place on the planet where everyone is a wit. Or so they would like to believe. 

Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal's government rolls out the second phase of the Odd-Even rule from April 15, but this time round the people seem to be a lot less enthusiastic about the scheme. Why? When for one, it's Delhi and hot as hell. The second reason is that the first phase of Odd Even in January 2016, was during the school break. April however presents a different story because summer's peaked already and with it, the commuters anger. 

You see you can drive in your odd-numbered car on and even day, as long as there is a child in school uniform with you. On April 7, journalist Hartosh Bal Singh wrote this on Twitter.  

   

 

The tweet received a lot of attention, eventually catching Arvind Kejriwal's eye. True to his nature, he RTed the tweet, acknowledging that dropping kids to school but not being able to pick them up could become an issue. 

Kejriwal asked Twitterati for help and Twitter being what it is - was helpful AND nasty. Sigh. So much for asking for help online.  

The ones who helped

The ones who just want to watch the world burn
