Traffic comparatively smooth as Assembly session commences
Roadside parking will not be tolerated : SP
Srinagar, Sep 26: Unlike the past Assembly sessions when Aam Aadmi’s travel down the City centre would turn pesky amid diversions and security restrictions, the vehicular traffic movement remained comparatively smooth Monday as the new session commenced, commuters and witnesses said.
They said there were no major hindrances in the movement of traffic. “Earlier, routine traffic would be diverted but today it was a different scene as we were allowed to ply straight on our way,” said a commuter.
Superintendent of Police Traffic Srinagar Maqsood Ul Zaman said the department arranged “specialized parking for various incomers to the Legislative Assembly.”
“Firstly we segregated the escorts from the VIPs including honourable ministers and the MLAs,” Zaman told Greater Kashmir adding that the VIP lot was allotted a separate parking.
“When the VIPs move with cavalcades more of rush is expected and that could create congestion. So we tackled the issue at the roots,” he added.
The SP said the men in blue would try their best to avoid inconvenience to the public during the assembly session. He, however, appealed the people to avoid roadside parking.
“Roadside parking will simply not be tolerated and heavy fines will be slapped on offenders wherever found,” he said.
The SP said two cranes would keep patrolling on the Batamaloo-Dalgate track to ensure that no roadside parking takes place.
