"There is not a single commercial hoarding in Delhi without Kejriwal's photo under the garb of odd-even scheme. The same scenario resonates in newspapers, TV channels and radio," he said in a statement.

Senior BJP leader Vijay Goel has sharpened his attack on Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over the odd-even scheme alleging that “huge” amount of public money was being spent on advertisements in the name of the car rationing initiative.

The Rajya Sabha MP, who declared that he would violate the odd-even rule to protest against the “political posturing” by AAP, asked the Delhi government to disclose the amount spent on advertisements.

“There is not a single commercial hoarding in Delhi without Kejriwal’s photo under the garb of odd-even scheme. The same scenario resonates in newspapers, TV channels and radio,” he said in a statement.

“I will leave my residence on 10 Ashoka Road tomorrow at 10 am in my odd-numbered vehicle and pay fine for violation of the scheme,” he said. Goel said his protest was against “political posturing” by AAP which he alleged is using odd-even scheme’s advertising budget to “plaster Kejriwal’s photo everywhere”.

Noting that BJP is “never” against any good scheme, he said, “I am for any endeavour that reduces pollution and congestion or brings relief to the people of Delhi.”

With a section of auto and taxi unions threatening a strike on Monday, Kejriwal had on Saturday alleged BJP wanted the odd-even scheme to “fail” but people will foil their designs.
