    Kejri is a drama King. He should get some sort of award from Bollywood. There is no one in Bollywood who can match Kejri.

      I have chronic bronchitis, which happened through living in Delhi's polluted atmosphere. To keep myself in a clean air atmosphere, I always travel in a car. Taking buses or autos would inflame my bronchitis severely. What does Kejriwal recommend that I should do? Perhaps the time has come to leave Delhi for good.

          Approvals are all great, but what you have yet to explain is how this will be enforced. How is it possible to check the licence plate of every vehicle in Delhi every second of every day? Even if you check the plate, its not enough. You have to also verify what day it is, whether the driver is male or female and also count the no. of people in the car.

            Kejru could not save himself from the VIP culture. What a shame? Aam Admi is looking after Khas Admi. Rich people will buy 2 car with even and odd numbers and drive every day. Middle cl will swap their car and drive everyday. What a useless scheme. Instead if the issued stickers for each house hold saying the car is drive able on the days of the week. The person driving the car will have to produce ID on demand. Kejru you are a total failure. First you put Patel against Modi and now Kirti. You are trying to compete with the man who is at least a million times better than you.
