Kerry caught in traffic snarl, Army Chief stuck too
For the second time in three days, visiting US Secretary of State John Kerry got stuck in the Delhi’s traffic jam on Wednesday, while Army Chief Dalbir Singh Suhag was also caught in the massive vehicular congestion, following heavy rains in the national Capital. Kerry was caught in the traffic snarls when he was heading towards IIT in South Delhi for participating in an event, while Suhag got late for an Army event due to the jam. “I don’t know if you came in boats... but I salute you,” said a smiling US Secretary of State John Kerry to a packed audience at IIT, Delhi, after his carcade got stuck in traffic.
The Secretary of State was 40 minutes late for the event at the IIT as his carcade waded through the waterlogged roads from his hotel, otherwise a 15-minute ride. Kerry was forced to cancel his trip to three religious sites on Wednesday too. Meanwhile, Army Chief Dalbir Singh was to reach the India Habitat Centre for an event, but couldn’t make it in time because of the traffic congestion. Several parts of the Lutyens’ Zone, a VVIP area, witnessed a serpentine queue of vehicles.
