In yet another incident of VVIP apathy, an ambulance was stopped by police to make way for the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami’s convoy. The Chief Minister was reportedly coming from the airport.
The video of the incident shows police officers stopping an ambulance to allow Palaniswami’s convoy pass through a busy street.
“Let the ambulance go” said a motorist but the traffic police did not pay heed. “Why should we wait for the CM to give interviews at airport,” the angry motorist was heard saying.
