The odd-even scheme proposed by the Delhi government to curb the rising pollution in the nation's capital was put to a test on Monday, which was the first working day after the scheme was implemented.
Delhi Transport minister Gopal Rai said the day had been a success. "No test for us, reports show it (the success of the scheme) was the will of the people," he was quoted as saying.
However, while the situation on the ground may have sailed smoothly, the internet and many social media users lost it after a photo started doing the rounds of a packed metro at the Rajiv Chowk metro station.
Here's one of the images that was tweeted by many.
It was later learnt that one of the pictures was taken on October 22, 2014 by a Hindustan Times photographer and it had no connection to the scheme.
However, the whole fight of whether the scheme was a success or not, did not stop some users from doing what they did best.
