Staff to prepare files on law and order and traffic-related problems

# 143 suggestions and complaints received
# 150 organisations take part in meeting
# DCPs to place files before local committees
# Priority to prohibiting parking near road intersections

BANGALORE: The Commissioner of Police, Ajai Kumar Singh, has initiated action a day after he heard complaints and suggestions from residents' associations in the city. In his first meeting with the public after taking charge, Dr. Ajai Kumar Singh had received 143 suggestions and complaints both in writing and orally. As many as 150 residents' and social organisations had participated in the meeting.

On Sunday, Dr. Ajai Kumar Singh directed his staff to prepare files for law and order and traffic-related complaints and list them under the respective police stations.

The files will now be sent to the respective Deputy Commissioners of Police (DCPs). They will initiate action after placing the files before the local committees. "If the local committees, who do the field study, find solutions feasible, the Deputy Commissioners of Police will implement them," a senior police official explained.

High on the Commissioner's priority is prohibiting parking near road intersections. Such a rule, which is mandated by Karnataka Motor Vehicle Act, would help drivers to easily manoeuvre their vehicles at corners. This was among the problems brought to the notice of the Commissioner at Saturday's meeting. A resident of Jayanagar 4th T Block had referred to the problem caused by vehicles parked at a school, close to a road intersection.

Today, the Commissioner held elaborate discussions on the issues raised by the public with the Joint Commissioner of Police (Administration), Gopal Hosur, the Deputy Commissioner of Police (Administration), N. Shivakumar, and the Deputy Commissioner of Police (Public Relations), H.N. Srikantaiah.

Dr. Ajai Kumar Singh had promised to take action on all issues concerning the police, which are within his powers.

On the issues related to the Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) and the Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BMP), he said he would hold meetings with the concerned. "The promise to you is that the police will certainly be proactive than react only when problems arise," he said.

This is a suggestion to improve the flow of traffic on Airport Road. Relocate the bus stop just before the junction with traffic signals opposite Manipal Hospital. Shift it opposite Britannia or Golden Towers where the sidewalk is wide enough to accommodate a bay. This will make the flow of traffic from airport to the city smoother. And reduce congestion due to vehicles heading towards Rustam Bagh Main Road, which is just ahead of the current bus stop. Thanks.
