Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal decided to teach by example on the first day of the odd-even road rationing plan in Delhi and his cabinet colleagues followed in his footsteps.
While Kejriwal himself car-pooled to work with Home Minister Satyendar Jain and Transport Minister Gopal Rai, other AAP leaders too took out their two-wheelers or shared a car to reach the Secretariat.
Delhi's experimental odd-even road rotation plan kicked in at 8 AM on 1 January 2016, with civil defence volunteers assisting the Traffic Police. The plan is to be implemented on an experimental basis for the next 15 days.
