Early Times Report
KISHTWAR, Aug 22 While paying a tribute over the tragic loss of innocent lives at Kuligad and Padder road, Kishtwar, for last two days, Chairman of Vishwashanti NGO LR Parihar, expressed his deep sorrow over the fatal accidents in which Eighteen Pilgrims lost their precious lives and thirteen others were injured in between Thathri and Drabshalla area and on Kishtwar- Padder road during the last two consecutive days.
A condolence meet was held in which two minutes silence was performed in order to pray for peace to the departed souls and strength to all their family members to bear such a irreparable loss.
While paying homage to this tragic incident, Parihar showed his deep sorrow and concern towards loosing these precious lives. He said that though the loss is irreparable and unforgotten but one cannot do anything except bereaving the departed souls and still we cannot remain mute spectators and see such accidents to happen and losing the previous lives every year on this area.
He further lambasted over the negligence and lackadaisical approach of concerned authorities in savings the previous human lives. He further added in anguish that though the natural calamities cannot be stopped. The place at Kuligad has snatched so many precious lives earlier. The local public has time and again complained the Civil as well as police administration regarding the overloading and rash driving of Magic /Eco/Cruisers but no step was ever taken to cancel the permits and licenses of these vehicles.
He stressed upon the government to have some concern over the human life as seen in other advanced countries and install the steel barriers all along the road side in these hilly areas. Though the steel barriers were earlier sanctioned throughout the highway right from Batote to Synthen Top area but where that project was and money spent is a big matter of concern and misappropriation of public money.
Moreover, In the end Parihar demanded an immediate compensation of at least ten lakhs to each the deceased family members and two lakh to all the injured accident victims.
Others who attended the meet were Zorawer Singh, Satish Thakur, Balwan Singh, Neeraj Parihar, Syed Tassaver, Ramesh Thakur, Arvind Kishore, Sanjay Rathore and others.
