He said that in view of the festival of Diwali, the traffic police of Gujarat will not collect any fine from people violating the rules till October 27. Sanghvi said that Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel and the state home department have decided to provide relief to the people during Diwali.
“The traffic police in the state will not collect any fine from the people from October 21 to October 27. If anyone is caught without a driving license or helmet or is found violating any other traffic rule during this time, our policemen will give them flowers.
Assembly elections in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-ruled Gujarat are due by the end of December. However, the announcement received a sharp response from All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen chief Asaduddin Owaisi, who termed it a “rewari” (freebie) from the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party.

In a tweet on Saturday, AIMIM chief Owaisi said, “In 2021, there were 15,200 road traffic accidents in Gujarat, in which 7,457 people lost their lives. This ‘Revdi’ bonus of the BJP Gujarat government is putting people’s lives at risk. “
Sanghvi on Saturday hit back without naming anyone, saying that those who do politics on the issue will get a befitting reply from middle class citizens (during elections). He further added that “middle class citizens go out during Diwali to shop with their families from what they have saved throughout the year.
Also many people go on two wheelers with their aged parents.
Many times people forget to wear a helmet or get a driving license. So instead of collecting the fine, we will give them a flower to make them realize their mistake. He said that our intention behind this is that people’s Diwali is not spoiled due to traffic fines.
On the other hand, he criticized the bikers racing on the roads and said that it is not just a mistake but it is a deliberate crime. Gujarat Police knows all too well the difference between an unintentional mistake and a crime.
Surat Police has caught many such bikers in the last few days. So nobody needs to teach us anything on that,” Sanghvi insisted. Govtsa Dwadashi, celebrated on Friday, marked the beginning of the Diwali festival this year. Lakshmi Pujan, the main day of the festival of lights, was celebrated on October 24. He is going.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel inaugurated 16,359 projects and works worth Rs 3,338 crore at a function in Ahmedabad’s Science City on Friday.
