New Delhi: The AAP government is gearing up for round two of the odd-even plan in the National Capital. The second phase of the odd-even scheme could be announced as early as next week.
The Delhi government on January 22 had sought the opinion of the citizens to bring back the odd-even scheme.
Congress leader Ajay Maken criticized AAP's move to bring back the odd-even plan and said “this is nothing but a diversionary tactic of the AAP government to divert the attention from the present crisis of the strike by municipal employees, teachers and doctors.” Makan also said that the government should focus more on public transport and then talk about other things.

As far as the opinion of the Delhi government about bringing back the odd-even plan goes, it has claimed that the opinion has been overwhelmingly positive, which is basically prompting them to rely once again on this scheme.
There were several dates that were suggested for the implementation of the scheme, including February 14, which is also the anniversary of the formation of the Delhi government. However, February 14 seems too close, but otherwise the government has not ruled out the possibility of bringing back odd even plan.
Delhiites have also been demanding an increase in public transport and the possibility of changing number plates who own two cars of odd or even number plates.
