New Delhi, Jan 4: Monday was said to be the first real day of test for Delhi government's ambitious Odd-even rule, as the national capital was back to working mode ever since the scheme was launched on Friday, Jan 1.
Though Delhi roads saw lesser number of 'odd' vehicles, for today was the day for even vehicles, but the public transport, especially Delhi metro, were flooded with people.
As per commuters, there were chaotic sights in the rush hours of the day, as every body was in a haste to reach his/her destination on time and metro was the most convenient mode of transport for them.
People took to Twitter to recount their experience in the metro on the first working day.
There were people who slammed the Arvind Kejriwal government for
spreading chaos in Delhi while there were those who commended the
government for its brave move.
