    Senior BJP leader Vijay Goel violated the Delhi government’s odd-even road rationing scheme on Monday by driving an odd-numbered SUV. Goel, driving the SUV painted in orange with messages written all over it, claimed the odd-even scheme was a “stunt”.

    Goel was driving towards ITO from his residence on Ashoka Road and was accompanied by BJP vice president Shyam Jaju and other party leaders. His car was stopped by traffic policemen near Janpath and fined Rs 4,000.

    The penalty on violation of odd-even rule is Rs 4,000. The fine was Rs 2,000 in earlier two editions of the road rationing scheme in 2016. Goel also violated the second edition of odd-even rule in April 2016.

    Goel, a former chief of Delhi BJP, said the odd-even scheme is a drama by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government. “Vehicles contribute to 28% of pollution levels in Delhi, in which cars contribute only 3%. This comes to cars contributing 0.84% to total Delhi pollution which means this #OddEven is leaving 99.58% causative agents of Delhi pollution untouched,” Goel tweeted.

    Soon after Goel violated the odd-even rule, Delhi transport minister Kailash Gahlot landed up at his doorstep with a bouquet of roses. “Offered him a bouquet of roses while requesting him to comply with odd-even rules,” Gahlot said.

    Goel told Gahlot that the government responded too late. “You took so long to come and convince us. It is the first time in 5 years you have come,” he said.

    Deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia criticised Goel for breaking the odd-even rule when Delhi was battling pollution.

    Congress leader Ajay Maken also took to Twitter to condemn Goel’s move. “As a lawmaker, how can he deliberately break the law? I’ve been most vocal critic of Kejriwal. But, I will never ‘contribute to air pollution’ as a way of protest! Grow up Vijay Goel!” he tweeted.

    The third edition of the odd-even scheme kicked in on Monday and it will continue till November 15 barring Sunday.
