Slamming political opponents for trying to fail the odd-even scheme, Rai said 113 cases of fire were reported to the fire services on April 15 this year, which is 66 more than the corresponding day last year. Similarly, on April 27, 142 cases of fire were reported in 2016, against 61 cases in 2015.
