'Singham' hits Jammu roads

Jammu, Feb 13 (UNI) Jammu and Kashmir Police Traffic Inspector General, Basant Rath, has asked the people not to use mobile phones while driving and appealed to them to make videos of flagrant graft on the roads.
Rath took charge as new IGP Traffic, J&K, last week from Jagjit Kumar.
The top cop has also asked people to register their complaints, suggestions and feedbacks on his wall besides messages on official whatsapp number.
In one of his Facebook posts, the ‘dabang’ officer has said, ''Ladies and gentlemen, I took charge as IGP, Traffic. Please leave all your complaints, suggestions and feedback on the traffic police FB page. We’ll be accountable. I’ll be accountable. My personal email id is My Twitter account is @KangriCarrier.''
Another post read, “Friends, my Whatsapp number is 9419018689. One useless message, you are blocked. No good morning GIFs please. And no calls. Or else, it’ll be your loss. Not mine. I love you”.
He also warned cops violating rules.
Rath said, “Dear Cop, please don’t make a mockery of my presence in Jammu. Please show me some respect and wear a helmet. I’ll ruin your day if you don’t mend your ways. Don’t you love your family members? Let Death wait. I love you”.
The new Traffic IGP posted, “Dear Jammu, if you find a traffic cop taking money from a driver, please use your smartphone and make a video. As a supervisory officer, I’ll be accountable. I’ll make each traffic cop accountable. Thank you.
''Good morning, Jammu. Please don’t use your mobile phone while driving that beautiful car of yours. I love you. And your car,'' he posted.
He assured strict action mini buses, matadors, creating havoc on city roads posted, ''Good morning, Jammu. just for a day, we’ll target pressure horns and music systems on buses and matadors. And no bus and matador will be allowed on the road to ply with its doors open. No means no.''
Another post read, “Dear Jammu, if I’m working on a Sunday, please respect my labour. Wear a helmet. Don’t jump traffic lights. Don’t modify the silencer of a Bullet motorcycle. And please have patience. I’ll target the matadors next week”.
But Rath also appreciated the efforts of his team headed by SSP Traffic Jammu Nisha Nathyar for to streamline the traffic mess around.
He asserted, ''Good morning, Srinagar. I’ll come to you this week. I plan to target the cops who think traffic rules are not meant for them. If they don’t wear helmets, if they don’t respect traffic lights, if they think their bikes are aircrafts, I’ll make things unbearably difficult for them”.
And finally, a message for traffic violators having political links.
''Dear politically well-connected interest groups, my name is Basant. I do what I do.''
