Red Beacon Ban: Traffic Police Stops President Convoy for Ambulance

red beacon ban     This is the first time I am writing a positive story on this blog. I am great fan of Narendra Modi. Since he completed three years in PMO at New Delhi, I am closely watching central governments achievements. This is why the blog tagline is Observer of New India!

     Only few minutes back, I heard a news from Bengaluru. A senior traffic police from the IT city of India (yeah, that’s how we Indians identify Bangalore) stopped presidents convoy for an ambulance.

     As per the decision taken by council of union ministers, red beacons are banned in the country from 1st of May, 2017. The ban is also applicable to the president, the prime minister and the chief ministers. However, emergency services like fire brigade and ambulances have been exempted.

     The incident that took place in Bengaluru on last Saturday (June 17, 2017) has strengthened the initiative of red beacon ban.

What Happened in Bengaluru?

     Pranab Mukherjee, the president of India was on pre-planned tour in the city. Police sub-inspector named ML Nijalingappa stopped the presidents convoy while it was crossing the trinity circle. An ambulance was coming from the another side. Nijalingappa took a quick decision and allowed ambulance to pass first. It should be noted that Mr Nijalingappa has 3 decades of work experience. His quick decision making and the recent red beacon ban policy helped to save one life. The red beacon ban policy allowed cop to take the decision. Since the presidents vehicle is not prioritized as per the new rule. Below is the video of the incident;

The After-Story…

     After the incident took place, the Bengaluru traffic department took the matter to social media through their official twitter handle (again thanks to Narendra Modi’s Digital India campaign. Kudos!!) The department even announced special reward to the super cop.

     It is clear that small decisions taken my Modi ji like Swachh Bharat, Red Beacon Ban, Jan Dhan Yojana, Aadhar linking, Yoga celebration, Online transactions has long term benefits. By the way, what you have to say about various decisions taken by the current government? I would like to hear from you. Share your thoughts in comment box below. I’m waiting.
