Yeddyurappa’s order to reduce traffic fine
Chief Minoister himself informed this
Gujarat has already reduced its fine
Nitin Gadkari is also soft on his statement
Bengaluru: Another BJP-ruled state, Karnataka, is now on its way to Gujarat.
On the lines of Gujarat, here too, the Chief Minister has decided at his level.
Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa has asked the Transport Department to implement the amendment after understanding the Gujarat order.
The Government of Karnataka has already started the process of reform, sensing the public anger generated by the traffic fine on the lines of Gujarat.
This time Chief Minister Yeddiyurappa himself has informed the journalists about this decision.
He has said that the officers have been asked to read and understand the Gujarat order.
On the same lines, traffic fines will also be reduced here.
Meanwhile, Deputy Chief Minister Laxman Savadi said that it will be decided in the next three-four days.
He is also the minister of this transport department.
Sensing the great displeasure of the public, Yeddyurappa has also decided on the lines of Gujarat.
On the other hand, the police clearly say that they will follow the law.
Till any other order comes from the government, action will continue under the current law.
The Bangalore Police has deposited 42.5 lakh rupees under this fine in the last two days.
Meanwhile, Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari has also clarified that the state governments can reduce the fine if they want.
Actually it is a law to save people’s lives.
Who wants this to hurt people more. But state governments should also keep in mind the dangers of people’s lives while taking decisions.
Mr. Gadkari made this statement when the Gujarat government decided to reduce the fine on its behalf and has also implemented it.
By the way, many states have not yet made this new law effective.
