Such Cyn­i­cism Is Rather Odd

The Economic Times - - Breaking Ideas -

In ‘Driv­ing Delhi Around in Cir­cles’ (April 15), Rakesh Mo­han Chaturvedi be­lieves that the Delhi govern­ment is be­ing naive to ex­pect citizens to em­brace the 'odd-even' scheme. He also thinks that the govern­ment is “keen on grab­bing eye­balls... rather than make any con­crete, long-term con­tri­bu­tion to re­duce pol­lu­tion”. It seems naive of the writer to be­lieve that ‘grab­bing eye­balls’ by it­self is a bad thing, and that a short-term plan dis­al­lows a long-term one. As for whether Del­hi­ites em­brace the scheme or not, that they are be­ing nudged is some­thing citizens of other cities can em­u­late.
