New Delhi: Defence Minister A K Antony has advised the three Services chiefs against imposition of traffic restrictions by Military Police during their movement after his Cabinet colleague Jairam Ramesh complained to him on the issue.

“In reference to your letter regarding the imposition of traffic restrictions by military police during the movement of Service chiefs, I have to inform you that the three Services chiefs have been suitably advised on the matter,” Antony told Ramesh in a letter.

Ramesh had written to Antony complaining against “needless traffic restrictions” imposed during the movement of Services chiefs.

He informed the Defence Minister that he himself has been “subjected to inconvenience every now and then. I see no reason why the traffic should be controlled by military police when chiefs are moving in their convoys”.
