Traffic policemen outside the venue of a function at NSCI club here stopped vehicles of the public to make way for the CM's convoy yesterday. Members of the club were even denied entry as the CM was present inside the premises.

Fadnavis said, "My sincere apologies to those who were stopped by the police unnecessarily. People in the state have always seen me stopping at traffic signals."

"I would make inquiry into the NSCI incident... unless there is an emergency or real threat perception inputs, police shouldn't trouble people," he tweeted.

"I don't believe in VIP culture," he said.
