We are keen to resolve any problem in the communication of MPs to Parliament. The vehicles so far arranged are sufficient for smooth and hassle free ferrying of MPs,” Bhalla said.Listing measures taken by Parliament Secretariat to redress concerns of MPs emerging from the vehicle rationing formula of Delhi government, Bhalla said that the transport desk, which facilitates the ferrying of MPs from their residences in Delhi to Parliament and vice versa, has 25 vehicles including 10 of Lok Sabha, eight of Rajya Sabha and seven DTC buses.In a statement, the Lok Sabha Secretariat said that due to Odd Even formula announced by the government of Delhi, only 13 vehicles (six from Lok Sabha, four from Rajya Sabha and three DTC) are available on even dates while 12 vehicles (four each from Lok Sabha, Rajya Sabha and DTC) are available for odd dates.”In order to ensure smooth and hassle free ferrying of MPs, six low floor buses were hired from DTC on April 25 but these could not be successful and were released on the same evening.Immediately, the ITDC officials were called and nine AC vehicles have been hired from them from June 26 to June 29. 10 vehicles have also been hired from the Parliament Security Service,” it said in the statement.
