CHANDIGARH : Members of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), youth wing of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), broke traffic rules with impunity in the city, while taking part in the nationwide ‘Vijay Sankalp’ bike rally organised by the ruling party as part of its campaign ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, on Saturday.

Riding bikes without helmets, holding up the traffic, and moving on the wrong side — they did it all after local BJP chief Sanjay Tandon flagged off five such rallies at different locations in the afternoon.

Traffic police now plan to take action against the violators. Senior superintendent of police (SSP, traffic) Shashank Anand said relevant videos will be examined and legal action will be taken. After a similar BJYM bike rally to celebrate the BJP government’s four years on June 10 last year, police had issued 19 traffic violation information slip (TVIS) challans.

The Saturday rallies were flagged off from the old airport light point, exhibition ground in Sector 34, EWS Colony in Sector 38, Government College of Art in Sector 10 and Shiv Shakti temple in Sector 30. Beginning at 11am, the event went on at 6:30pm.

Tandon, who also happens to be the chairman of the UT administrator’s advisory council’s standing committee on traffic management, can be seen flagging off a rally where most of the bikers were not wearing helmets.

COPS REMAINED MUM DURING THE RALLY

Traffic was held up as the bikers rode slowly and stropped on the roads while shouting slogans. A video available on the Chandigarh BJP’s Facebook page shows an SUV driving on the wrong way along with the riders.

Police vehicles were seen stationed at all intersections, but the processions went on without any intervention.

BJYM leaders, including state president Gaurav Goel and his predecessor Amit Rana, can be seen in the processions. Talking to Hindustan Times, Goel said it was unfortunate that people weren’t wearing helmets. “We had asked all of them to wear helmets. I was wearing one myself,” he said.

Meanwhile, Sanjay Tandon said as he had to flag off the rallies at five locations, he couldn’t keep a track of the processions.

“I had held a meeting with the BJYM on Friday and told them strictly to follow rules. However, the rules were flouted,” he said.


Tandon said even after the June 2018 rally many BJYM members had approached him on being fined, but “I had told them to face the consequences of their actions”. He said a similar approach will be followed this time as well
