Before jumping the gun and introducing second phase of the odd-even scheme in the national capital, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday came out with an elaborate plan to seek public opinion on the road-rationing experiment.
The government has decided to invite public suggestions on a six-point questionnaire which will initially be sought through email, while a a phone line would be introduced in the longer run.
The decision in this regard was taken at a meeting of all MLAs and concerned department officials, chaired by the Chief Minister.
As per the plan, the AAP government has asked all MLAs to organise ‘Jan Sabhas’ in their respective constituencies from February 6 to 7 to seek people’s suggestions on the implementation of second phase of the car-rationing scheme.
“We have decided to seek public opinion in a structural way and incorporate people’s suggestions before implementing the second phase of the odd-even scheme which received an overwhelming response from the public earlier. Based on the feedback received by February 8, we will analyse and come up with a concrete plan,” Kejriwal said at a presser.
“From tomorrow, we will issue advertisements asking the masses to email their suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org. We also plan to introduce a phone line soon for the same purpose,” he added.
