A whole new trend in VIP traffic management

On Saturday, July 29 as I hit Shahrah e faisal from II Chundrigar road in the evening to get home, I could like any karachiite can what the extra ordinary presence of policemen and rangers on the sides of the streets means.

Though I was glad that since the guys can still be seen, means that the person is yet to pass the streets, which meant I could potentially still get home.

Little did I know that as I crossed FTC, I would be pushed inwards to Sindhi Muslim, since the VIP has not decided to block the road as he moves, he has decided to TAKE OVER it!

I had to move through Tariq Roada onwards from Dalmia, since traffic heading to Shahrah e faisal from Sharah e Qaideen was also blocked, and same from Shaheed e Millat.

What defeats logic, is that from blocking a part of the road, they moved to blocking the whole damn road!

    Well I too got the brunt of this VIP takeover, but he was actually coming from Defence via the bypass going over baluch colony bridge towards hillpark. I too was using by-pass roads utlizing a relatively open PECHS block 6 to land right underneath baluch colony bridge just in time to see the speeding convoy off to no-mans land.

    They fear for their life as if the world depends on it – only Allah knows the exact time when they will depart, then no security can save their ass
