Raising the issue during Zero hour in Upper House, Pramod Tiwari (Cong) said it is an 'arbitratory' and 'impractical' decision that would cause major inconvenience to people in Delhi which does not have a robust public transportation.

"This is a serious issue. We don't want to see a law and order situation and the Government of India should issue an advisory on this," he said, adding that other countries implemented such an idea after developing public transport.

He sought to know how this kind of idea can be implemented when the state has not improved basic public infrastructure.

To this, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said, "It relates to the decision of the Delhi government. We have to address pollution. In theory, we accept it, but the suggestion is impactical."
