New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP and Bollywood actor, Paresh Rawal, along with other BJP MPs, on Monday, were found flouting the ‘Odd Even’ rule in the national capital.
Rawal, along with Ashwini Copra and Rajendra Aggarwal were seen driving into the Parliament in even numbered cars while the city obeys government orders of using odd numbered cars on odd numbered dates and even numbered ones on even dates.
The odd-even rule was breached by the BJP MPs despite transport arrangements that were made from the South Block to the Parliament.
