Untitled design 12

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah of Karnataka has decided to relinquish the privileges associated with the Zero Traffic Protocol for his vehicular movements. The Chief Minister personally instructed the Bengaluru City Police Commissioner to withdraw the protocol, citing the difficulties faced by commuters due to the imposed traffic restrictions.

The Zero Traffic protocol is typically implemented when high-ranking dignitaries, including the Chief Minister, Prime Minister, and Governors, travel by road. During such instances, the police enforce traffic restrictions to facilitate the smooth passage of the dignitary’s convoy, causing inconvenience to regular commuters in the process.

The decision to forgo this special privilege came after Siddaramaiah himself experienced the adverse consequences of the protocol. While attending his grandson’s graduation ceremony at the Canadian International School in Bengaluru, the Chief Minister witnessed extensive traffic congestion, leading him to realize the challenges faced by ordinary citizens along the restricted routes.

This gesture echoes the sentiments expressed by recently ousted Chief Minister Basavraj Bommai, who also refused to avail the Zero Traffic protocol for his convoy. The move signifies a departure from the traditional practice followed by political leaders, indicating a growing concern for the welfare and convenience of the general public.

Additionally, Siddaramaiah made another noteworthy announcement. He expressed his decision to no longer accept flowers or shawls as tokens of respect at public functions. Instead, the Chief Minister urged his supporters to present him with books, emphasizing his commitment to promoting knowledge and education.
