The traffic mess is caused, commuters say, due to wrong parking of vehicles dispatched for election duty from Women’s College M A road in Srinagar.

A number of buses are parked outside the college resulting in congestion of road. Polling staff accompanied by security teams of paramilitary CRPF troopers and J&K policemen are dispatched in these busses to the assigned polling booth.

Srinagar is going for by-polls tomorrow on Sunday for parliamentary elections.
