GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, June 24: Donning fluorescent yellow jackets, a number of youth here Sunday turned traffic ‘cops’ to manage traffic along the Srinagar-Islamabad (Anantnag) highway.
An official spokesman said the youth of Pandrethan here “voluntarily assisted” in traffic management in view of the huge rush of Yatra vehicles. However, sources said the youth intervened in view of “traffic mismanagement” on the highway to “show the cops ways of regulation.”
The official spokesman said hundreds of volunteers, donning fluorescent yellow jackets came on the highway as hundreds of vehicles of Yatris, tourists and locals were stranded between Pantha Chowk and Pandrethan in Srinagar.
“The youth politely but firmly ensured that all vehicles followed a single-lane and were not allowed to overtake which was the main cause of jamming,” the spokesman said. “The youth efficiently facilitated the clearance of ambulances and emergency vehicles. Senior Police and Traffic officials including Army officers passing-by appreciated the initiative taken by the local youth and hoped that people in other areas would also provide similar assistance and help to the traffic department for ensuring smooth flow of traffic.”
Meanwhile, Additional DG Police Civil Defence, Dolley Burman has advised Dy Controller Civil Defence Muhammad Rafiq to enlist these youth as Civil Defence Volunteers and provide them proper training.
