Meet Held To Tackle Traffic Rush In Twin Capital Cities of Itanagar And Naharlagun
ITANAGAR: Altogether 110 traffic police and wardens led by SP (Capital) and SP (Traffic) participated in a meeting called by Home Minister Bamang Felix at his official bungalow here on Sunday. The meeting which was aimed at discussing ways and methods to curtail the burgeoning traffic congestion that has been hitting the twin Capital cities of Itanagar and Naharlagun was also attended by the SDPOs and OCs of Naharlagun and Itanagar police stations. During the interactive meeting, Felix appreciated the effort put in by the traffic police and wardens in maintaining the rush of traffic.
“Ever increasing traffic every day coupled with traffic rule violators has been a challenge for the department,” said the Home Minister who further called for a foolproof mechanism to control this alarming issue.
Felix directed SP Capital to prepare a detailed plan on effective traffic management in the twin capital cities and submit it to him at the earliest. He also stressed the need for getting tough against traffic violators which is also one of the major reasons for the traffic jams in the capital complex.
“We are standing on the road, dawn to dusk, under the scorching sun, the dusty environment which is gradually taking toll of our health, drenching in rain, wind and all other adversaries with only two motives, first to ensure that everyone reach their destination be it home or office in time, safe, unhurt and second to ensure safety and security of the precious lives. Let no one die of road accident”, said one of the traffic police.
Another traffic warden while narrating his woes said, getting abused is an everyday feature and at times we get manhandled from the public too.
Felix said that he would do whatever was possible for them. He said that their grievances would be put forth to the appropriate authority for redressal and further urged them to render their services with utmost dedication.
“I fervently request my dear people of Arunachal Pradesh, especially the Capital dwellers to appreciate the services of the traffic wardens and police and cooperate with them to create a better Capital Complex,” appealed Felix.
