"I'd also request those going to drop and pick their kids to take their neighbours' children as well," said Rai, who carpooled for work in a odd numbered car with Burari legislator Sanjeev Jha and Mehrauli legislator Naresh Yadav.

On Ram Navami celebrations in the national capital, the transport minister said as the devotees were expected to car pool or come in odd numbered cars.

"We don't want to interfere in any religious procession. Moreover, it is advisable for the devotees to carpool or use odd-numbered cars," Rai told IANS.
