VIP exemption by AAP government is ‘complete hypocrisy’


Robert Vadra, the son-in-law of the Congress president, Sonia Gandhi, on Saturday described the exemption given to the VIPs by Delhi’s AAP government under the odd-even formula a ‘ complete hypocrisy.’

He wrote on his Facebook, “Odd and Even ways !! Creating parallel lists of exemption, is complete hypocrisy.
If a law is implemented in the interest of the people, we all must adhere, and not be VIPs. (sic)”

Congress party defended Vadra’s suggestion saying that the infrastructure in Delhi was not equipped to effectively implement the new initiative to curb pollution.

Vadra’s comments come after Tej Pratap Yadav, Lalu Yadav’s son and a minister in the Nitish Kumar-led government, had suggested riding horses to cut down the pollution in Bihar.
