Hyderabad: Most urban cities have one more sore point for traffic besides vehicle congestion and that is halting of traffic whenever any VIP passes by, often with a procession of vehicles behind him. The common commuter is stranded, some time for a long time.
Only some VIPs chose to travel with no VIP convoys just like common commuter. KTR is one of them who chose not to travel with VIP convoys.
On Wednesday in the Peak hours when K. Taraka Rama Rao also popularly known as KTR who is the working president of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi was passing through Panjagutta towards Banjara Hills, former minister did not stop the traffic and went along with the common commuters. His kind gesture was loved by the commuters.
Rakesh Varma, who witnessed KTR’s took to twitter and said, “Sir, Really pleased and thank you that you did not halt the traffic and travelled in traffic on Panjagutta and Banjara hills road at peak hour #stophaltingtrafficforVIP”
The tweet instantly went viral, many people commented praising KTR for not halting the traffic.
Replying to the tweet KTR tweeted, “I never did that (halted traffic) even when I was a minister brother. Also never used a lal /Neela batti ever (much before Gol banned them)”
KTR for sure is setting good examples for other VIPs.
