“Just heard what is reported to have taken place between between a SI of the traffic police & one of my ministers. Will ascertain details”
“I won’t hesitate to take action & apologise as well just as soon as I get the facts”.
By posting these two tweets on the micro blogging site early Sunday morning Chief Minister Omar Abdullah virtually created ripples in the corridors of power.
The entire media and senior officials of the traffic police department went in to tizzy to ascertain the actual details and dig out the identity of the minister involved.
Till late evening when CM too failed to update his account the media persons decided not to lend credence to the previous post.
It was learnt that some of the TV channels had run special programmes highlighting misuse of Red beacon and ran previous incidents of public spat between the VVIP’s and police cops/traffic police officials. In the same capsule previous incidents involving J&K cabinet minister was also showcased and might have caught CM’s attention prompting him to post a comment without verifying that the incident was reported long back and was not a fresh one.
