Traffic movement unhindered in city despite PM's rally
Kolkata: Traffic movement in the city was more or less normal with the Kolkata Police making arrangements in advance to restore normalcy in traffic, keeping in mind Prime Minister Narendra Modi's rally at Brigade Parade Ground.
"The movement of goods vehicles in the city from 12 noon to 8 pm, along with some restrictions in parking in and around the meeting venue augured well for us and traffic flow was more or less normal," a senior police officer of the Traffic department of Kolkata Police said.
The police did not allow any sort of parking in and around Victoria Memorial, Kidderpore Road, Hospital Road, Queens way, Cathedral Road, Casuarina Avenue and Lovers Lane.
Senior officials of Kolkata Police were on the road and made necessary diversions as and when required. Police Commissioner Anuj Sharma had instructed the traffic wing to make all necessary arrangements to ensure that common people are not inconvenienced by any means.
