New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today urged residents to follow the controversial odd-even formula for cars as the government attempts to clean up the city battling alarming pollution levels. "It is for you, your children," Mr Kejriwal said at a press conference.

Here are his top five quotes:

  1. I will not be exempt from the formula, neither will my family

  2. If the people of Delhi violate it (formula), then we will be left with no option but to scrap the plan

  3. This scheme is for you, for your children. We are all coughing. It is for the environment.

  4. Let's make this a movement of the people, not something to be enforced with a danda (stick)

  5. This (formula) can never be permanent
