He also urged school students to convince their parents, relatives and friends to follow the odd-even scheme, that will come into force from January 1, and to encourage them to opt for carpooling, which the Chief Minister shall himself resort to.

"You will have to change the hearts of people. You don't have to issue challan or argue or misbehave with anyone. You will hold placards at red lights and on spotting a violator, you will give him a flower and urge him to go back home," Kejriwal said.

He was addressing volunteers, comprising Civil Defence men, NCC and NSS cadets, at Chhatrasal stadium during a briefing session to make them aware about their specific role.

Earlier, Kejriwal made students of Rajkiya Pratibha Vikas Vidyala at Civil Lines take pledge to fight pollution and convince their parents, relatives and friends to adhere to the odd-even scheme to be rolled out in two days.

Kejriwal cited the scheme won't meet success merely by issuing challans and unless people of Delhi resolve that it's their own movement "we cannot implement it."

"Everyone in Delhi needs to understand that it's their own movement. They do not need to follow it because Kejriwal and his government is strict about it, but they need to follow it because it's a question of their life, their childrens' lives," he add.
