People Are Praising This Karnataka Traffic Cop For Clearing A Waterlogged Road

Our social media feeds are filled with news of bribery, crime and violence. But amidst it all, there are also glimmers of hope and positivity. Incidents that restore our faith in humanity and selflessness. For instance, the video of Shraddha Shukla, a cop in Madhya Pradesh who gifted new clothes and shoes to a destitute woman in her district. And police official Sunil Sandhu, who educated road users on a helpful provision of the Motor Vehicles Act.

Twitter user @AkshayVandure1 shared a video of a traffic cop who used a spade to clear a waterlogged road. He single-handedly got rainwater to flow into a drain by the side of the road.

According to NDTV, the video is from Karnataka and has amassed over 40,000 views and 400 retweets. It has received praise from Bengaluru City Commissioner of Police, IPS officers and residents of the state.

While many people applauded the cop’s efforts and urged the authorities to bestow him with an award, there were many saying that the incident displayed the inefficiency and lazy attitude of the municipal workers who were actually responsible for cleaning the road.

We hope that the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) takes notice of this and deploys personnel to clean other waterlogged roads in the state.
