Sept. 26: The Congress protest rally on Saturday played havoc with traffic, with vehicles stuck on arterial roads connecting the Central Business District and around Vidhana Soudha.
Later in the day, traffic was thrown out of gear again with a huge festival rush in the evening. Hundreds of extra buses, plying to meet the higher demand, caused jams in the Majestic area and bumper-to-bumper traffic on the highways heading out of the city.
The Congress rally, which began bang in the middle of peak hour in the morning, affected traffic on Race Course Road, Sheshadripuram, Cubbon Road, Infantry Road and Queen’s Road. The police did not have any plan in place to divert traffic and prevent the gridlock.
“We closed the road to Vidhana Soudha for a brief while. Once Congress leaders and party workers were arrested, the traffic returned to normal,” a cop claimed. “The gridlock was caused because of the festival rush.”
