Mehbooba asks students to help implement ‘odd-even’ in J&K

SRINAGAR: Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti today sought cooperation of people of the State to cope with increased road traffic and called upon students to voluntarily help implement odd-even scheme, similar to the one in Delhi.

“Till the time all the departments come together and people do not cooperate, there will be no solution to traffic woes. We will try to remove bottlenecks, start bus services and other facilities, but I seek cooperation of the people in this,” Mehbooba told reporters here.

The Chief Minister was speaking to the media after chairing a high-level meeting on traffic problems.

Mehbooba called upon the students of various colleges and universities to set an example by implementing odd-even scheme.

“You see many vehicles are parked outside a college, students come in cars to colleges, similarly in universities and they occupy a lot of space.

“I think that if they take this initiative, others will follow. It will be an example for the whole world that our students have voluntarily started something,” she said.

The chief minister said if the students succeed, then peoples’ mindset would automatically change. (AGENCIES)
