Professional - Traffic Police Chief - " Crane Bedi "


(The Goa today, 30 April 1983) 

    April 30. All you susegad goans watch out! Goa’s own version of the Hell’s angels — a gang of heavy set men on heavy growling motorbikes — is prowling the streets of our towns striking fear in the hearts of hitherto easy going, carefree and careless people.
    This squad is different from the one that terrorized USA’s western seaboard for years in that it is the Goa traffic police at their job — something they haven’t quite been about for years. It’s the new ‘gang bosswho has caused the change.
    Under police S.P. Kiran Bedi’s no nonsense leadership city-traffic patterns in Goa are changing almost overnight. No-parking zones are being strictly observed, people without licenses are keeping off the roads, the system of one-way is being reorganized and footpaths are being cleared of hawkers and shopkeepers’ encroachments.
    For those who are slow at taking hints the word going around is that a crane is on its way from Delhi to tow away all sorts of things on the roads that shouldn’t be there. Come CHOG(M) Goans will understand fully well why Kiran Bedi become “Crane-Bedi” during the Asiad in Delhi.
