Delhi's Odd-Even formula to combat pollution appears to have been branded a success by the residents of Delhi. Netizens have praised Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for the initiative - claiming that the trial run has resulted in a dip in pollution levels and has led to less traffic.
Social media users have some glowing reviews for the trial run, with some even asking Kejriwal to extend the formula beyond its 15-day trial run - which ends on 15 January.
Some users have also declared the formula to be the best thing to happen to the National Capital in a long time. While there are conflicting reports about how effective the trial run has been in terms of reducing pollution levels, Kejriwal seems to have won this round, at least with social media users.
These words of praise are sure to bring a smile to Kejriwal's face.
Take a look:
