Rally success, at what cost?
Chaos on the road.
Passengers and Rally attendees had to walk for upto 2 KMs by abandoning their buses due to traffic jam. Pax on city routes waited for hours as most buses hired by the Rally organizers. Big Q at Shuutle buses counter and than held up in the traffic jam. Saw people walking from upto Bambolim slope to Panjim.
Goa Traffic Police cannot even manage 2000 odd people at Kala Acadamy Festivals etc how could they handle 2lakhs?

video coming soonr should know this than anbybody and should outsource the traffic cops from neighbouring states. btw, what was the neet for organising this rally? Publicity stunt? All they wanted to make this historic or record breaking rally so that it give wider publicity by national TV channels etc. Ok, they achieved their goal but at what cost?
