New Delhi, December 15 The National Green Tribunal on Friday dismissed the Aam Aadmi Party government's review plea seeking exemption for two-wheelers in odd-even scheme saying such relaxation would defeat the purpose of improving Delhi's ambient air quality. "It is undisputed before us that there are over 60 lakh two-wheelers in Delhi. The number also consists of two- wheelers which are very old and their emissions are beyond prescribed limits," a Bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar said. "It also cannot be disputed that emissions from two- wheelers are also a major source of pollution. The exemptions sought would defeat the entire purpose of improving the air quality of Delhi," it said. Under the scheme, odd-numbered vehicles can use the roads on odd-numbered days, and likewise even-numbered vehicles on even days. The green panel also directed the Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) to introduce more buses in its fleet as per the Supreme Court order and strengthen the public transport ...

London: Manchester City host Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday on the back of a record 15 successive Premier League wins, and on the basis of their visitors" recent away form, a 16th victory appears to be the likely outcome. Tottenham will travel to the Etihad Stadium fourth in the standings following consecutive home wins over Stoke City and Brighton and Hove Albion in the past week, but their position masks troubles on the road. Having won their first four away league games this season, Mauricio Pochettino"s side have earned just one point and scored only twice in their past four away league matches, losing 1-0 to Manchester United, 2-0 to Arsenal and 2-1 to Leicester City before being held to a 1-1 draw by Watford.
