Bored of hearing political blame game? Now, the Delhi police and the Gurugram police were engaged in holding each other accountable over the traffic jam near the Delhi Gururam border. All this took place after heavy rain lashed the national capital and the NCR region which forced the police of both the states to argue over jurisdiction on Twitter.
All this played out yesterday at around 7 pm when, a commuter, who claimed to be stuck for one hour at NH 48 in front of Ambience mall, tweeted the matter by tagging Delhi police’s official handle. Birender Kumar Singh wrote: “@gurgaonpolice @dtptraffic stuck for last one hour at NH 48 in front of ambience mall. Please help.”
Replying to the tweet Delhi Traffic Police said that the area was out of their jurisdiction and complaint was forwarded to Gurugram Police. “Thanks, matter is out of Delhi Police jurisdiction so your complaint is being forwarded to @gurgaonpolice for taking necessary action,” the Delhi police wrote.

The old blame game of Delhi police, either the offence can be prosecuted on the spot, or out of jurisdiction or staff has been informed!!!

When the ball was put into the court of Gurugram Police, they again passed it on to the Delhi Police. In reply to the tweet, Gurugram police wrote: “@dtptraffic Plz clear your traffic over rajokri flyover. This is resulting in serious traffic congestion in Gurugram,”
This sort of blame game has annoyed many Twitter users who were perhaps getting late for their other work. Sunil Issar, a user tweeted, “Lovely table tennis between 2 police teams who should be interdependent on each other.” Another user, CA, wrote: “@dtptraffic how u know his location & decide on jurisdiction from your twitter account? This NH8 mess occurs every single day.”
