A scheduled meeting with the deputy commissioner of police (DCP) traffic, Bharti Arora, and a group of residents from DLF City and Sushant Lok to sort out problems emanating from a one-way traffic rule did not materialize.
The DCP was to meet the representatives at 11am, but instead she had gone to attend a meeting with the commissioner of police. The disappointed RWA representatives led by Gurgaon citizens’ council and its president RS Rathee, waited for the DCP in her office for about one-and-half-hours but had to return as she was reported to be ‘busy’ in a meeting with senior police officials.
The DCP’s act has not only disappointed the residents, but also her intentions to implement one-way traffic on master road leading from Huda City Centre to Golf Course road via Galleria has come under a cloud, the residents said.
“She has been acting on the advice of some influential people, certain educational institutions with vested interests and business establishments and enacted one-way traffic plan without consulting the resident associations around. And we will not tolerate this,” said TN Kaul, one of the representatives.
However, the DCP clarified that she “had to rush to be in the meeting called by the police commissioner and had to leave office abruptly and could not meet the people despite an appointment” .She has now fixed a meeting at 11am on September 12.
