There will be a relaxation on the odd-even scheme on November 11-12 in Delhi to ensure hassle-free commute on the occasion of the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev. The odd-even car rule was implemented by the Kejriwal government to curb the rising pollution in the city.
Expressing concern over the rising air pollution, the Supreme Court recently directed the Centre and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government to work together to find a solution. The apex court blasted the Centre and the Delhi government, saying that a blame game is underway rather than focusing on a solution.
