Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today urged union ministers, who have been given exemption under odd-even scheme, to voluntarily follow the car-rationing experiment starting from April 15.

Like the first phase of odd-even scheme, the AAP government has kept the union ministers out of the ambit of second phase of the scheme.

“Although union ministers have been exempted from the ambit of odd-even scheme, I urge them with folded hands to follow the scheme voluntarily as several judges, who had been given exemptions from the first round of odd-even scheme, had done,” Kejriwal said.

While announcing the exemption for union ministers earlier this week, Delhi Transport Minister Gopal Rai had said that the city government does not want any “unnecessary controversy” by bringing them under ambit of the 15-day scheme.
