The official Twitter handle of Chennai Traffic Police mistakenly retweeted a post that contained a video of RSS members conducting a rally at Tiruvananthapuram. After being called out by a number of online users, the Twitter handle came up with a post seeking apology. However, online users didn’t spare the handle and demanded a suspension minimum for the person who shared such post.
Sharing a tweet uploaded by a Twitter user named Stalin, Chennai Traffic Police said that it was retweeted by error and sought apologies. Greater Chennai Corporation is having 60 k plus followers for their Twitter handle and has been responding to the complaints that are being made by the public.
On Thursday, the Twitter handle retweeted a post of “Kashmiri Hindu” which showed a video of RSS members conducting a rally at the Thiruvananthapuram. While a follower shared the same and asked whether the page got hacked, Chennai Traffic Police said “Retweeted by error. Apologies”

The tweet was deleted later. However, Twitter users who has been following the handle for a long time, called out the carelessness of the department of Chennai traffic police.

Months ago, a reply made by the official handle of the Police department to a food related post went wrong as they said that it was an unnecessary one. However, it was clarified later through the same handle saying that the reply was made for someone who retweeted it through the Greater Chennai Police handle and regretted for the blunder made.
The reply got severely criticized by the public as, in Tamil society, it is highly believed that the food habit of an individual shouldn’t be judged, criticized or condemned. While many other users of Twitter came up tweets quoting GCP’s reply expressing their displeasure, Chennai Police came up with a clarification.
Through a couple of tweets, the Police said “The post you (Abubacker) uploaded got retweeted by the official page of Greater Chennai Police and our reply was made to warn about the twitter handle that is used for public people, shouldn’t share the posts of individuals”
“But the reply was mistakenly made under your post and we regret for it. The reply wasn’t made referring to your food choice” the Greater Chennai Police added in their reply. It is believed that a number of admins are handling the account and the reply was made to the one who retweeted the post. However, the clarification still confused few users but many who condemned GCP accepted the regret.
Here’s their replies :
ஆனால் தவறுதலாக தங்களுடைய பக்கத்திலேயே இது பதிவிடப்பட்டதற்கு வருந்துகிறோம். இது தங்களுடைய தனிப்பட்ட உணவுத்தேர்வினைக் குறித்தல்ல.
