CWG headache

Sarkar needs all sort of excuses to intimidate you and me who do not care to know their rights.
These babus will pass anti-privacy laws just to tell you that terrorists need to be caught. They'll allow policemen to arrest without warrant for six months because real evidence can't be produced against terrorist and then use this same law to arrest a man who has written support from nobel prize winners.

Latest trick these babus have played is the 2000 bucks fine or jail if you drive in the CWG blue lane.

Let me tell you the police can't do it and they can get lost.

To impose penalty or restrain liberty(by putting in jail) of an individual the police needs to have a law debated and passed in the assembly. They just can't pass an order saying that because my mother was ill and I forgot to manage the CWG games therefore in this emergency situation citizen's will be jailed or fined heavily if they drive in the blue lane.

Secondly, they are passing orders under section 144 CrPc which is different from Motor Vehicles Act. So these white clothed bribesmen can't impound your vehicle or cut you the white slip for violating traffic laws. They just can't do it.

So if they do catch you doing it insist on a lawful receipt.

Thirdly, even their uncles can't arrest you or fine more than Rs 200 because they can arrest only by the power by IPC 188 for violating an order. But that power to arrest can only come once they get a permission from a court which has to first check that you did violate an order.

Technically, police can't arrest you or fine you directly because they saw you doing it. They have to ask the court before doing that.

Don't let these guys make a fool out of you.

Because they made a mess out of CWG so they decided not to debate in the assembly and just go ahead with these restrictions is unacceptable.

They can get lost!

Good thought, but i do not agree with you on the point that you made about the CWg lane being reserved.
Did people know how to manage themselves, this situation would never arise. Have you seen ppl driving these days, Their conduct is worst than wild animals. And if a fine is not imposed, noone will bother. Even now there are people who voilate such things, not bec they want to be liberal and they oppose such a step, just to have some kind of pleasure by doing something which they are told not to do. Being liberal and all is ok but there are some things that have to be regulated. I think its a good step by the govt to have dedicated lanes looking at the condition of traffic in delhi....
If there is no traffic police, people skip red lights, drive in the wrong lane, sometimes wrong direction, overspeed, do not wear belt and a hundred more examples of the like. They need a hawaldar to manage them. And hence such steps.

Hey bhagwan! I am saying those rules cannot be made without a discussion in the assembly.
You and I don't deserve to have undebated rules. At least I don't. Tumhara tum jaano. :)

Oh! well, I'd like to agree to the point that its damn troublesome being unnecessarily impounded - not at all acceptable. There should be strictness to a certain limit to provide safety to the foreign guest sportsmen, and Indian home-runners, but yeah, I totally agree to the undue and unfair "chances/maukaz" the "white clothed bribesmen" can have (been a victim of the same some time ago :( ) in the so-called scenario
Thanks for the post :)

There was a discussion on TV/radio as well about the same... and the easiest they suggested to avoid inconvenience is .. "use Metro/public transport"
