Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal released the exemption list for the much controversial odd-even formula on December 24, which states that women drivers, women drivers with children less than 12 years of age, CNG vehicles with proof, a long of list of VIPs, among others will be exempted from the odd-even rule coming into effect from January 1, 2016.

As always, Twitterati is out to give a piece of their witty mind and what has caught the attention of many members of the male gender is how women drivers are exempted from the rule and they are not. While some find it difficult to digest, others have taken up the cause of the brotherhood. Take a dekko.
With women getting exemption in #OddEvenFormula, destiny has given a well-deserved heartache to all those who made jokes on women’s driving.

Any studies that women cause less pollution?? So why discrimination against men in this #OddEvenFormula ?? Divide and Rule

Where is equality when women drivers are allowed to drive anytime they want and men are forced to use the public transport? #OddEvenFormula

While many support Kejriwal’s strategy to curb pollution, the exemption list has again touched the sensitive nerve of those who find it difficult to comply with it.
” Forget car numbers. Delhi has an odd Chief Minister who wants to get even with everyone else.” #OddEvenFormula

If this madness fails, I blame Modi and citizens for not cooperating. After that, I resign and move to Punjab. I am #OddEvenFormula
