Green Policy in Final Throes

Since implementing a ban on the production of carburetor-equipped motorcycles, numerous attempts have been made to kill the mandate; the most recent of which is a formal request signed by two Cabinet members demanding license plates to be issued for a rather large number of carburetor-equipped two-wheelers.
Seemingly the government is backtracking on its promises with regard to green policies that were to preserve the environment, curb air pollution and enhance the quality of urban life.
As reported by ISNA, Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani-Fazli and Industries Minister Mohammad Shariatmadari have of late written a letter to First Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri, asking for the issuance of license plates for 9,543 carburetor-equipped motorcycles—a request that falls in sharp contrast with the ban issued on their production during President Hassan Rouhani’s first tenure.
