New Karnataka Home Minister says no to "Zero Traffic" privilege
Karnataka's new Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy has refused to use his "Zero Traffic" privilege in Bengaluru. He believes it is not fair to stop the traffic for his convenience. Zero Traffic is extended to Chief Minister and Home Minister where vehicles are temporarily stopped for their convoys to pass. Reddy's predecessor G Parameshwara's use of this privilege had previously caused inconvenience to common public.
Ramalinga Reddy said "If I use the Zero Traffic privilege, it does not look fair on my part. I have to attend several functions, both personal and public and wherever I go, if traffic is stopped, then people will curse me."
The timeline is brewing!
