Delhi Government has implemented an odd-even scheme in the national capital on November 5 to control the Air Quality Index in the capital.
The decision to start the odd-even formula was taken after air quality got severe in Delhi post-Diwali.
Since the implementation of the scheme by the Kejriwal-led government, netizens are divided over the decision.
Some of the users thanked the Delhi government for re-starting the scheme and pushing people to use public transport not only to control the pollution but also minimizing road traffics.
“Dy CM @msisodia cycled today to work to Delhi Secretariat, ITO from his residence near Supreme Court, with a message to Delhi – "Please follow #OddEven, for yourself, not because of the govt. has enforced it,” a user wrote.

While many users created hilarious memes on the Odd-Even Scheme.
Have a look at some creativity of Twitterati:
Abhee #OddEven start hue mushkil Se 3-4 hours hue hai aur @ArvindKejriwal ji ne puri Delhi main banners bhee laga diye ke 25% pollution kam hogaya but if I know kal maximum tha and as of now we speak it’s upwards 500 AQI #DelhiAirEmergency #DelhiChokes #DelhiPollution pic.twitter.com/GRiT6Ybs4p— Sandeep Gandotra (@SandeepN9NE) November 4, 2019
Data shows - automobiles not the main reason behind #DelhiPollution— Akash Banerjee (@TheDeshBhakt) November 4, 2019
Not a fan of the #OddEven band-aid at a time when we are hemorraring
However i'll not a dick & oppose even a small measure of removing 50% of vehicles off the streets of the capital for a few days#ActionNotWords
Sorry Delhi not with u in Odd Even as I am out of town this week. But to make my contribution in ur fight against pollution, I willn't drive my Car atleast in November or till the time air quality improves! I will happily use DTC buses for free travel!#OddEven #ChangeWhatYouCan— Vandana Singh (@VandanaSsingh) November 4, 2019
#OddEven is like trying to save a person from a Heart attack by Homeopathy.— Gabbbar (@GabbbarSingh) November 4, 2019
AQI of 600 but from tomorrow begins #OddEven.— Anand Ranganathan (@ARanganathan72) November 3, 2019
It doesn't matter that PM2.5 INCREASED during previous Odd-Evens brought in by the Industrial-scale fraudster @ArvindKejriwal to reduce JUST 2% of total Delhi Pollution that is caused by cars, to 1%.

What rubbish!— Charu Pragya🇮🇳 (@CharuPragya) November 4, 2019
Vaccum cleaning of roads?
Better public transport?
Environmental clearance for industries?
We can do much more than this publicity farce of #OddEven! https://t.co/cehyQdUWhH
