Police blamed for chaotic traffic

BANGALORE: The Bharatiya Janata Party city unit has blamed the police for the traffic chaos in the city and said it is unfortunate that the Police Commissioner, Ajai Kumar Singh, has instead chosen to blame the citizens for no fault of theirs.

The police have failed to cope with the increasing traffic. They have no idea on how to provide a permanent solution to the traffic problem. Instead, they have chosen the easy path of converting roads into one-ways, Ashwath Narayan, party's city unit President, and S. Prakash, spokesperson, said in a statement here on Tuesday.

They demanded that the Commissioner's statement be withdrawn immediately and urged him to take action against the policemen who indulged in exploiting motorists. By blaming the citizens for the traffic problem, the Commissioner has ignored the failure of his department. Commercial buildings have become a source of income for the traffic police, Mr. Narayan and Mr. Prakash claimed.
