New Delhi: AAP legislators will reach out to the people to get their opinions on implementing the second phase of the odd-even scheme in Delhi, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Monday.
"From today our MLAs will hold meetings in their constituencies to get opinions on implementing the second phase of the odd-even scheme," Kejriwal said at an event organised by the government to celebrate the Republic Day here.
The legislators would invite suggestions from the people regarding how and when to implement the next phase of the traffic restriction scheme aimed at curbing air pollution, he said.
"The odd-even scheme has been a success. And keeping in mind people's wishes, we wish to implement it again," the chief minister added.
The Delhi government had convened a meeting on Monday evening of all the ministers and AAP legislators with regard to preparations for the second phase of the odd-even scheme, Delhi Transport Minister Gopal Rai said.
The scheme was implemented on a trial basis from January 1 to 15, allowing odd-numbered four wheelers on roads on odd dates and even-numbered vehicles on even dates.
