Vijay Goel challaned for violating odd-even

New Delhi: Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) Rajya Sabha MP Vijay Goel has been challaned by the cops during the second phase of odd-even. Vijay Goel had, on Sunday, announced that he would break the rule as he considered odd-even a publicity stunt by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

"I don't oppose the odd-even scheme rather I oppose the amount of public money being used by the Kejriwal government to advertise it. If they remove those advertisements, I won't protest with regard to this scheme," Goel said.

He also put a tweet saying: 

Goel earlier met Transport Minister Gopal Rai during which the latter urged him to refrain from breaking the rule.

Vijay Goel was challaned for driving an odd number car on an even date and was not carrying a driving license and car insurance papers.

This act by the BJP MP has given fresh ammo to AAP in the entire odd-even controversy. AAP leaders are cornering the BJP MP after the incident.
