Arvind Kejriwal government on Monday started the odd-even car rule in an attempt to curb the rising pollution. Ever since then, there has been only a marginal improvement. Kejriwal on Wednesday highlighted that there should be a technology to convert stubble to CNG and all the neighbouring states should come together in making it possible.
On Wednesday, Delhi police issued a total of 406 challans on the third day of the odd-even vehicle scheme. However, the number of challans issued on Wednesday was less than those issued the on the second day of the scheme.
