KEEP IT UP Islamabad Traffic Police
In our country common person is not supported by the system and institutions of the state. Majority of our institutions is badly affected by corruption and the remaining is not properly working due to the influence of politicians, bureaucracy and some other strong groups. But this is not the case with Islamabad Traffic Police (ITP). A few days ago, the writer was driving his car in Islamabad. The fuel was not sufficient and I was trying to reach a petrol pump but in vain and the car stopped due to no fuel. The traffic warden of ITP came and very politely asked about the reason, “What is problem sir?”. I told the reason and he pushed my car to the roadside to become safe of other traffic. While asking how much petrol will you need? I was surprised first then became happy and said I need petrol of Rs 200. He called to the mobile team and within 10 minutes one rescue vehicle along with two mechanics reached there. The mechanics checked my car and get started. I paid the amount of petrol Rs. 200 and get receipt. When I start my car, I really feel that if all the institutions adopt the supportive role like ITP then the frustration among people of our country will be lavished.
