Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s pet ‘odd-even’ car-rationing scheme came for a scathing attack in the Lok Sabha on Monday with an expelled RJD member dubbing it as a plan that would generate corruption, even calling him “psycho” and “gambler”.

Raising the issue during Zero Hour, Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav contended that the scheme would only help CNG companies and companies manufacturing buses and cars and would hardly reduce pollution.

He said Kejriwal has introduced the scheme to gain “cheap popularity” and to make a quick moolah.

Citing an IIT-Kanpur study, he said the pollution from cars was a mere five per cent and the Delhi government has failed to address other issues which contribute for 95 per cent pollution.

The second phase of the scheme began on April 15 and will go on till April 30.
