Thousands of commuters are daily facing inconvenience because of the callous attitude of the Commissionerate Police (CP) which is yet to remove the barricades put up on MG Road for the winter session of the Assembly though the Assembly has been adjourned sine die since December 16.

The MG Road connects the busy intersection at Master Canteen on one side and the Assembly on the other. It experiences heavy traffic during working days. Due to barricades, the vehicles have to take a detour or go on adjoining narrow lanes with much difficulty.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Nitinjit Singh justified the presence of barricades stating that those have not been removed as the CP is anticipating more rallies. This year, CP received requests from 33 groups to take out procession and stage protest at Lower PMG.

Since the winter session of Assembly was supposed to continue till December 26, most of the groups had scheduled their rallies and protests till its last working day, he added.
