Arvind kejriwal , odd even formula


Arvind Kejriwal has been named one of the world’s 50 greatest leaders by Fortune magazine. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is the only Indian leader on the list topped by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. The Fortune magazine’s  annual ‘World’s 50 Greatest Leaders’ list features personalities from all over the world , from the fields of business, government, philanthropy and arts.


The AAP chief is at 42nd position on the list because of his efforts to curb pollution in New Delhi by implementing the odd-even vehicular policy on alternate days on the city’s roads. Arvind Kejriwal is risking his political career to fight pollution in Delhi .


“When Kejriwal unveiled a blueprint to tackle the smog in New Delhi — called the world’s most polluted city by the World Health Organization — many were sceptical. A key component: an ‘odd-even’ pilot project in which vehicles were allowed on the roads only on alternate days. The uplifting result of the pilot this January: roads were less clogged, hourly particulate air pollution concentrations dropped by 13 per cent, and citizens could breathe deep. The leaders you’ll meet here, known and new, will lift your mood and upgrade your assessment of the world’s future. Some may inspire you to join their followers. And those unheard-ofs, so seemingly ordinary, may even prompt you to rethink your own potential as an inspiring leader, ” a source from Fortune magazine said .
