Amid allegations that CNG sticker is being sold for Rs 1,000, Delhi government has started close monitoring of the distribution of these stickers at a CNG station near CGO complex in Lodhi Road.

Delhi Transport Minister Gopal Rai said that government has installed CCTV cameras at the station to keep a strict vigil on the staff distributing CNG stickers and if any irregularities are found, strict action will be taken.

“An official of Indraprastha Gas Limited has been suspended and government has registered an FIR against him for indulging in malpractice,” Rai told PTI.

Ved Prakash, a member of Aam Aadmi Sena, a breakaway faction of Aam Aadmi Party, yesterday hurled a shoe at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in a press conference when he was briefing reporters on the roll out of the odd-even scheme.

In the middle of CM’s speech, Prakash stood up, asking what the government has done about a sting he had carried out on Friday in which he had allegedly caught the staff of the CNG station at CGO complex selling CNG stickers for Rs 1,000.

Under the odd-even scheme, it is required for CNG-run cars for having such stickers to get exemption from the road-rationing plan starting from April 15.

Chief Minister Kejriwal yesterday said that his government was seriously considering implementing the odd-even plan for 15 days every month.
