Srinagar: Inspector General of Police (IGP) Traffic Basant Rath and the newly elected Mayor of the Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC) Junaid Azim Mattu engaged in a spat over the management of traffic in the capital city.
Mattu, who was elected as a SMC Mayor just two days back, took to microblogging site Twitter to talk about traffic management in the city.

“Have received numerous complaints about traffic issues in the city. I have spoken to the SP Traffic (Urban) and sought a review of current traffic diversions and plans. The SMC has been directed to help with decongestion of alternate routes for some relief,” Mattu wrote on Twitter.
Hitting back at Mattu, IGP Rath wrote that the traffic management was not the Mayor’s domain
“Not your domain. Traffic diversion at Jehangir Chowk is a compulsion. The vendors have created a mess on Amira Kadal-HSHS-Maharaja Bazaz-LD Hospital stretch. SMC needs to clear the mess,” Rath wrote on his Twitter handle.
