Traffic diversion for BJP convention

Traffic diversion for BJP convention

The city traffic police have indicated there will be a major traffic diversion around Palace Grounds and along Bellary Road on Monday, with more a lakh of party workers and prominent BJP leaders visiting the City for the party’s Vijay Sankalp Samavesh.

According to a senior police official: “Apart from the regular traffic diversion, we will also enforce parking restriction around Palace Grounds, especially in its Tripurvasini entrance that will be the gateway to the show.” The Police officials assured that for the sake of public convenience, they would release the final plan for traffic diversion by Sunday.

The meet which will flag off the BJP’s election campaign in Karnataka, will begin at 11 am and will have several BJP bigwigs such as Rajnath Singh, Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley in attendance. When questioned about a High Court directive which puts restrictions on mega political conventions at the Palace Grounds, BJP State President Pralhad Joshi said that they have taken the necessary permission to hold the rally.

“We will try our best to cause minimum inconvenience to the public on the rally day. Parking facility for out-station vehicles will be slotted away from the venue. We don’t have any other alternative space in the City to hold such a rally,” he added.
Chaos is expected since the entry is through the first gate of Tripura Vasini from the Mekhri Cirlce, which is narrow. Timings of the rally during peak hours is another cause for worry.
