Unveiling New Karnataka Towing Policy.
Home minister Araga Jnanendra held a meeting in august 2021 with the Bangalore City Traffic Police and towing officials as there was a rise in complaints against them and ordered them to follow the standard operating procedure while performing their duties and to treat the public courteously. The agenda of the meeting turned out to be futile because many alarming incidents took place even after the meeting and there is a huge increase in complaints against the towing officials as they are not following the stranded procedure yet.
The Incidents which took place in Bangalore in recent days shed some light on the inhuman act of the towing officials. Videos of these acts went viral rapidly on social media as a result of which towing officials faced a lot of criticism from netizens.
Incidents led to criticism of Towing system.
These incidents are very disturbing because Government officials are there to protect the interest of the public but in the case of towing the traffic police and officials have increased the troubles of the public by not following standard operating procedures. “Rise for Rights” NGO has launched a social campaign against the ruthless attitude of towing officials and the members of the NGO stated that there are many videos on social media apart from the above incidents showing towing staff and traffic police harassing the public.
Response from the Government.
Before these incidents also there were attempts made by the ministers to solve the towing issues but the beneficiaries i.e., the public were not benefited from these attempts or meetings conducted by the ministers hence there is a strong need for an effective law which should govern the towing rules and regulations as it in the ambit of the state to make laws regarding these matters.
