Mangalore Police Commissioner Kuldeep Kumar Jain Gets Good Response During Phone-in Programme

Police Commissioner Kuldeep Kumar R. Jain said that he will take a relook at the circular one-way introduced about a year ago following many complaints from the public. The commissioner said all aspects leading to the formation of one-way have to be studied while the present traffic pattern’s impact has to be studied too. Overall, the public have adjusted to the new set-up, though they complain about circuitous detour to their destination.

Interacting with reporters after his first phone-in programme with the public, the commissioner said re-examining the circular one-way was not his priority; there were other pressing issues, including decongesting the Central Market area where the new market building was coming up, ensuring pedestrian safety across the city, etc. Though it was the first phone-in after a gap of three and a half years there were 26 grievances during the hour.

The prominent issues other than circular one way was, rash and negligent driving by private city and service bus drivers within the city. Mr. Jain said action would be initiated. He also responded positively to a caller who demanded action for riding without helmet and such other traffic rules violations. Responding to a caller from Surathkal on the complaint of gambling at many bars and restaurants in the region, Mr. Jain directed the official concerned to immediately launch raids on such activities. A caller urged the Commissioner to drive away unauthorised agents from the premises of the Regional Transport Office in Mangalore.
