Beacon drive only for city?

THE DRIVE against hooters and beacons fitted on vehicles seems to be focused within the city only. There are scores of jeeps and cars coming from surrounding districts through either Kanpur road and Rae Bareli road that remain a nuisance with the traffic policemen just watching them pass by without taking any action on the two busy highways. These cars and jeeps breeze through the VIP road with no checking done by policemen either in the morning or late night hours.

THE DRIVE against hooters and beacons fitted on vehicles seems to be focused  within the city only. There are scores of jeeps and cars coming from surrounding districts through either Kanpur road and Rae Bareli road that remain a nuisance with the traffic policemen just watching them pass by without taking any action on the two busy highways. These cars and jeeps breeze through the VIP road with no checking done by policemen either in the morning or late night hours.

Indispensable lot
A FEW AEs/SDOs feel the Lucknow discom management are indispensable to the State Capital. Directed by the Supreme Court’s committee, the management had shifted around 50 AEs/SDOs who had been posted in LESA for as long 10-30 years, last year. But now the new discom management  has realised that at least half a dozen of the transferred engineers should have stayed in LESA where without them power supply cannot be maintained. There were rumours that the management had prepared a proposal that sought to bring these engineers to Lucknow on deputation! The officials, over-anxious to return to Lucknow, were leaving no stones unturned to see to it that the proposal was cleared at ‘any cost’.
