Jammu, February 25:
Inspector General of Police Traffic Basant Rath has ruled out any change in his style of working to “ improve the traffic system” in Jammu in spite of a warning by Director General of Police S P Vaid who had warned him of action under law if he did not conduct himself within the prescribed rules.
“ Delivering results is more important for me than wearing uniform ( under the J&K Motor Vehicle Act) ,” Basant Rath told a Hindi newspaper in response to the stern warning issued to him by DGP in a strongly worded communication on Thursday..
The DGP had warmed him of action under the law for his conduct of checking vehicles and seizing mobile phones etc unbecoming of a police officer.
Replying to these charges against him, Basant Rath told newspaper that his primary task was to improve traffic in Jammu and as long as he is performing that task , nothing else matters. “ What was the achievement of those IGs traffic who wore uniform?,” he asked.
He, however, refused to be drawn into a controversy over what the DGP had said about him , saying that the DGP is his senior and he would not like to comment on this.
