Bengaluru, Feb 7: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in Delhi is all set to complete one year in office soon. Before marking the event, Arvind Kejriwal government is eagerly waiting for people's verdict on the odd-even scheme to be implemented in the capital city on a permanent basis.

The ruling AAP party is conducting an opinion poll, beginning from Saturday (February 6), to gauge the mood of the citizens before implementing the second phase of the odd-even restriction scheme.

Will Delhiites give a big thumbs-up to odd-even formula?
The much talked about odd-even scheme was enforced in Delhi on a pilot basis for a fortnight from January 1.

Under the scheme four-wheelers with odd registration numbers piled on odd dates and even numbered vehicles on even dates.

Members of AAP on February 6 said it has received around 10 lakh calls from the citizens of the national capital.

"The two-day exercise is to ascertain the views of the public on whether the odd-even plan for vehicles should be brought back," said an AAP leader.

"We have received 10,00,000 calls regarding people's opinion on the odd-even scheme. Among 10 lakh calls, 45,000 were missed calls," said AAP spokesperson Nagendar Sharma.

"Around 10,000 forms have been downloaded and 9,000 emails have been received regarding public opinion on the plan and the data will be complied on February 8," added Sharma.

On the basis of Delhi government's odd-even survey, members of AAP told media that 80 percent of people in the city want the odd-even plan to be reintroduced on a permanent basis.

The residents want revamping of the public transport system for a hassle-free commute. Many want relaxation for senior citizens, instead of women drivers getting exempted from following the odd-even scheme.

Now, we have to wait and watch what will be the verdict of Delhi residents on the odd-even scheme.
