Early Times Report

RAJOURI, Aug 21: A massive protest was held at Sailani Bridge (new Bus Stand) by the stranded commuters against the traffic police and senior officers of the department including SSP as well as district administration for not making adequate arrangements for their onward journeys to their homes to celebrate Eid festival.
Several stranded commuters blocked the bridge and suspended traffic on Rajouri-Jammu highway forcing the traffic to come to halt.
Protesters alleged that people from many parts of the state and country reaching Rajouri for heading towards their homes in remote areas in Budhal, Kotranka, Darhal, Thanamandi and Manjakot but due to inadequate passenger vehicles and lackadaisical attitude of the traffic department officials these people got stuck at Rajouri.
"Since morning people are reaching at Rajouri from different areas for their onward journeys to their homes to join the families for the Eid celebrations. But the administration has not made adequate arrangements for their journey despite the fact that there was shortage of passenger transport vehicles on the internal routes in the district," said a protester.
He added after hectic efforts they arranged a bus for their onward journey to Kotranka area but the traffic police stopped the bus, challned the driver for overloading and forced the people to get down and sent back the bus. "For the last many months several protests were held against overloading and since morning almost every passenger vehicle left Rajouri overloaded but the traffic police remained silent as money exchanged hands. Why the rules were applied when we arranged a bus? Where were the traffic officials since morning and their rules and regulations?" said another protester.
Nadeem Mir, Youth NC leader who led the protest said that on getting information about the protest Govind Rattan, DySP, HQs along with police party headed by Tahir Khan, SHO reached the spot and after talking with the stranded commuters arranged vehicles for their onward journey to Budhal and Kotrnaka.
