Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has come up with an odd-even number plate formula devised to combat the rising level of pollution in the city. Not only his idea is facing political opposition, but the rage of the common man as well.
Recently, #DelhiOddEvenLogic was among the top trends on Twitter, where people counterblased him for coming up with such a logic. China's capital Beijing has had a car restricting policy since 2008 wherein people either use public transport or rely on car pools.
#IsupportDelhiOddEven is the number One trend on Twitter now, where people are using the hashtag to support the logic citing environmental reasons or are opposing it, saying that it lacks planning.
Here's how Twitter reacted:
