"Mere rules can not change anything, change of mindset is needed which we aimed at through implementation of odd-even formula. Two days trials show that people of Delhi are ready for it," Rai said.
    
The minister said that government had prepared for implementation of the scheme on day one and now its 'responsibility' of the people to ensure that violations do not take place even on Monday.

Regarding questions over Delhi government's preparations to ensure proper implementation of the formula on Monday when vehicular traffic and number of commuters is likely to significantly go up, he said that people of Delhi are ready to follow the rule.
    
Rebutting charges of Opposition BJP and Congress that the odd-even formula was launched without adequate preparations, Rai said they were opposing the scheme just for the 'sake of opposition.'
    
"Yesterday while heading towards India gate I stopped in front of BJP office and found that there was only one vehicle that violated odd-even formula," he said.
