    Setting a precedent, Nagpur Traffic Police led by DCP Chinmay Pandit fined 52 BJP workers for flouting rules during JP Nadda’s rally held in city.

    While citizens across the country are being fined heavily for breaking traffic rules under the amended Motor Vehicles Act, BJP workers in Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari’s very own city of Nagpur, a large number of BJP workers were seen riding two wheelers triples, without helmets and a couple of pillion riders even standing on moving bikes in the rally during BJP working president JP Nadda’s recent visit to the city.

    When ABP News reporter questioned one of traffic constables standing nearby, he tried to walk away, saying, “Ask the DCP about it, what can I say.” However, taking note of the violations, Nagpur Traffic Police DCP Chinmay Pandit set an example by fining 52 BJP workers for violating traffic rules by scanning CCTV footage from various cameras located along the route.
