Three days after the Delhi government implemented the second phase of its even-odd car initiative, the scheme faced the litmus test as the schools and offices reopened on Monday.
“Today is the litmus test for odd-even scheme. And just like our last time attempt to make it a success, we have to co-operate with each other,” Delhi Transport Minister Gopal Rai tweeted.
ऑड-ईवन की आज अग्निपरीक्षा हैं !
पिछली बार की तरह हम सबको मिलकर इसे पास करने के लिये एक दूसरे का सहयोग करना हैं !
