BJP MP Vijay Goel Friday said he was going to violate the AAP government’s flagship odd-even plan Monday to protest the “crores of tax payers’ money being spent in publicising” the road-rationing plan. Goel said he was ready to pay the fine of Rs 2,000, imposed on violators, for the “symbolic protest”.
“The CM is spending public money worth crores on advertisements. This is the tax payers’ money and no one is saying anything about it,” he said.
The BJP leader dared Kejriwal to implement the odd-even policy permanently “if it was as successful as claimed by the CM”.
“Why do you need to spend tax payers’ money on publicity throughout the country when you are sure the scheme is already successful,” asked Goel.
“I am not talking about Kejriwal specifically, but if people elect a psycho administrator who keeps spending tax payers’ money, and neither the Lt Governor nor the Centre take any action against him, then people will get harmed,” he said. To counter government advertisements, the MP said he was going to put up posters and hoardings against the policy.
The BJP leader said if Kejriwal was serious about fighting rising pollution levels, he should have put together a comprehensive plan to curb it.
