New Delhi: The new version of the Odd-Even part-II in New Delhi is not going to appreciated by people like first phase. People are bound to face the ordeals of the commuting during these days and parties have blamed AAP Government for the same.
Congress leader Ajay Maken has said the AAP Government was putting pressure on the people with the introduction of the second phase of the odd-even scheme in Delhi today without improving the public transport system, despite the AAP being in power for nearly one-and-a-half years. He said the odd-even scheme can succeed only if the public transport is improved.
According to Maken, the DTC fleet utilization and route capitalization going down, private vehicles have gone up in the Capital, and the very purpose of reducing pollution with the introduction of the odd-even scheme will be defeated if the number of two-wheeler vehicles on the roads is not brought down, as presently the number of two-wheeler vehicles have only gone up in the absence of an efficient public transport system.
After the AAP Government came to power in Delhi, there was a record low in the fleet utilization and route capitalization by the DTC. Kejriwal Government could have and should have improved the DTC services, as the Delhi Metro was a gift of the Congress Government and it was an autonomous body, and despite the metro providing an efficient service, it was not sufficient to cater to the entire need of the Delhi public transport system, which can be improved only if the DTC improves its service.
