"I will pay the challan. It is a symbolic protest. Arvind Kejriwal has failed as a chief minister to control the pollution in Delhi," Vijay Goel said after receiving the challan of Rs 4,000.

Countering Goel, Ajay Maken tweeted, "MP Vijay Goel is a lawmaker. As a lawmaker, how can he deliberately break the law?"

    "This scheme is just a gimmick, they (Delhi Govt) themselves say pollution is due to stubble burning, then how does this scheme help? I am ready to pay the fine for violation," he said.

    The odd-even scheme, an anti-pollution measure, kicked in from 8 am on Monday in the city, with Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal urging people to follow it for the sake of their family and kids.
