Delhi roads are always seen occupied with traffic but the city roads on Saturday were not as busy due to the tightened security measures in some areas of Delhi, following the odd even rule , But many motorists were seen driving an even-numbered car on an odd day. Police were issuing 297 challans till 8 pm on Saturday, most of which were issued during the peak hours.
Due to the odd even rule in Delhi,police admitted that even though 200 teams have been lined up to levy charges of the violators of the odd-even road exercise, however, it is arduous to stop such cars at every intersection, especially during the rush hours since they stall the rest of the traffic.
Some officials have informed that at a time only one or two vehicles can be levied down for a fine. So, it has been stated that “There is not enough road space or manpower to put a halt at several vehicles at a time. Many violators manage were trying to take advantage of this,” said a police officer.
So in the coming week, the police plan is to enhance the checks during which violators entering the city might be booked in the border areas. Plans have also been discussed on how to ease the traffic movement during these checks.
For instance, it has been discussed that no random checks will be conducted as it might lead to snarls on arterial roads during peak hours.
However, mobile teams will be extended around big markets or municipal corporation parking lots to check for errant vehicles parked there.
The civic bodies have also been requested to not allow violators in their parking lots. Traffic inspectors from the 52 traffic circles will be on patrol with a list of the 25 exemptions, which will be checked before an errant car is let off.
Odd Even Rule states that Civil Defence volunteers will also inform the violators about the heavy fines and effectively turn them around especially in border areas.
Police said that the volunteers will primarily focus on spreading awareness about the scheme.
Do you know that recently a lawyer filed a plea in the Delhi High Court on Tuesday which challenges the proposed implementation of the odd-even road rationing scheme, saying that it violates the fundamental right to equality by giving exemption to women drivers?
The AAP government in Delhi has discussed to implement the road rationing scheme in the national capital from November 4 to 15.
This decision came for hearing before a bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice C Hari Shankar which listed the matter for November 1 as the petition has not placed on record a copy of the scheme of the Delhi government.
The plea which is filed by advocate Shashwat Bhardwaj said, “The State, that is, the sole respondent herein, in which is implementing the said scheme and enforcing it on the residents of Delhi is also denying equality before law on the ground of sex and therefore the said scheme warrants it to be struck down by this court as it is clearly violating the Article 14 of the Constitution.”
It also requested direction to the Delhi government to set up a committee comprising senior bureaucrats and members of the Bar to conduct a study on the viability of the odd-even news and any alternative arrangement that does not violate any fundamental right and also fills the void that the scheme fails to take into account.
The petitioner said this representation was made before the chief secretary but nothing was done.
He said this rationale given by the government for exempting women is “vague, mischievous and misconceived and the scheme is being enforced only to gain political mileage”.
This will be the third time when the scheme will be enforced in Delhi after two 15-day periods in January and April 2016.
The Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal earlier said, “Keeping the security of women in mind, we have decided to exempt women from the odd-even scheme including all the vehicles which are being driven by a woman driver, a woman driver ferrying female passengers or those with women drivers and children below the age of 12 will be exempt.”
Two-wheelers will also be exempted from the scheme, which will be implemented from 8 am to 8 pm except on Sundays, and the violators will invite a fine of Rs 4,000.
“President, Vice President, PM, Governors, Chief Justice of India, Speaker of Lok Sabha, vehicles of union Ministers, Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha Leaders of Opposition, Vehicles of Chief Ministers of States and union territories, will all be exempted from odd-even scheme. Delhi CM & Ministers will not be exempted,” he had added.
“Vehicles of Supreme Court Judges, UPSC Chairperson, Chief Election Commissioner, Election Commissioners, CAG, Deputy Chairman Rajya Sabha, Deputy Speaker of Lok Sabha, Lieutenant Governor of Delhi, Judges of the Delhi High Court, Lokayukta and emergency services will be exempt,” he had added.
Also , Vehicles which will be carrying school students will also be exempt from the scheme.
Unlike the previous years, privately owned CNG vehicles will not be exempted, he had announced. odd even news

Whenever someone says ‘It’s Finger-Lickin’ Good’, KFC is what comes to our mind. This 64 year old and of one of the most successful food chains in the market has decided to get rid of its iconic tagline due to coronavirus. As the number of cases is rising day by day, the food chain has shown its concern and changed its tagline which was not at all in the purview of safety measures prescribed. However, the global chief marketing officer of KFC has assured that the tagline has been suspended temporarily only and it will be brought back once situation will restore to normal.
Reason of suspending tagline
The main reason behind suspending the iconic tagline of KFC was the ongoing pandemic. The tagline was not following the safety measures prescribed during a pandemic. On Monday, when KFC announced that it will be suspending its slogan, it also called it “most inappropriate slogan for 2020”. In a statement, the company said, “Think we can all agree, this year has been like no other and, right now, our slogan doesn’t feel quite right. So, for that reason, we’ll be pressing pause on using it in our advertising, for a little while.” As the safety measures include not touching face or eyes with unwashed hands, KFC found it’s slogan inappropriate for this year.
Statement of Global Chief Officer at KFC
Catherine Tan-Gillespie, the global chief officer at KFC has made a statement regarding the slogan. She has also assured the customer that the only tagline is changing but the food will remain the same. Her statements also made it clear that the suspension of a tagline is temporary and it will be restored once this pandemic situation will be over. In her statement, she said, “We find ourselves in a unique situation — having an iconic slogan that doesn’t quite fit in the current environment. While we are pausing the use of ‘It’s Finger-Lickin’ Good’, rest assured the food craved by so many people around the world isn’t changing one bit.
KFC as a global brand
KFC has been one of the most successful food chains of restaurants in the global market. It is popular in almost every corner of the world. But as a global brand, the responsibility of the food chain company is also great. The part is that KFC realizes this responsibility and has taken steps by keeping it in mind.
The Global cases for Coronavirus are increasing and this is a matter of concern. What KFC has done is an example of Corporative Social Responsibility and the other big brands should also realize this as well. Customers are very happy at this decision of KFC as the brand has taken favourable steps for their safety. All we can do now is praise KFC and pray for the situation to get normal so that we can once again enjoy listening to the iconic tagline of KFC.

A few weeks back, video of Pune’s ‘Warrior Aaji’ while performing martial arts on street got viral on social media for her swift martial art and lathi skills. The fact that she is 85 years old and performs just like a young performer made her more popular. If you remember her, you must also be remembering the fact that Sonu Sood had tweeted that he wanted to open a martial arts school for her. Sonu Sood has kept his promise and our Warrior Aaji has a small martial arts school in Pune.
Sonu Sood’s tweet
As the video of 85-year-old Aaji got viral on social media, netizens began to praise her for her skills. She used to perform martial arts on the streets of Pune to sustain herself and her family. As her video got viral, it reached our hero Sonu Sood who tweeted that he wanted to open a martial arts school with her so that she could train the women of our country and teach them self defence measures. At that time, everyone praised Sonu Sood for this announcement. Though everyone was sure that Sonu Sood will keep his promise but no one knew that he will open a school for her so soon. He kept his promise and inaugurated her school on the holy occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi.
Reaction of Aaji
In a recent video, Aaji said that her dream has been fulfilled by Sonu and she has named her school after him. In another video, some kids are seen practising with her. She will be teaching methods of self-defence and martial arts to women and young girls in her school. The main idea of Sonu Sood was to enable her to train females in the art of self-defence with the support of Aaji. Even at the age of 85, Aaji’s gestures are quite active and swift. She is an inspiration for many.
One more humanitarian act by Sonu Sood
Sonu Sood, the real-life hero who has played a very important role and sending migrants to their home towns has proved once again that humanity is alive. On the basis of humanitarian concerns, he helped Aaji and set an example for every Indian to help others. This act of Sonu Sood has been gaining praise from the public through social media platforms.
This act of kindness done by Sonu Sood has made us believe in the existence of instincts of humanity among people. As now our Warrior Aaji has got her own martial arts school, we are quite sure that she will be producing more warriors and talented students in the field of martial arts. Also, Sonu’s dream of opening a school in which Aaji will train women in martial arts for self-defence is not too far. Aaji will be soon starting classes in her school. From this incident, this clear, India needs more Sonu Sood.
