Early Times Report
JAMMU, Aug 22: While expressing grief & anguish over the tragic accident in District Kishtwar where 13 persons including 11 more Chandi Mata pilgrims were killed when an overloading van they were traveling in skidded off the road and plunged into river Chenab near Noos Padhyaras area of Kishtwar- Padder highway.
The ill-fated vehicle was on its way to Kishtwar from Padder when the driver lost control and it plunged into river chenab resulting into on-the -spot death of 12 persons.
Kuldeep Kumar Rao, Advocate Kanwar Jeet Singh Thakur & Om Raj Bhall the members of Thathri Development Front, District Doda, in a press release issued here have expressed concern over the increasing road accidents due to overloading of the vehicles / bad conditions of roads. They wondered as to how, heavy toll of lives occurred in the road accidents have failed to wake up the concerned Department particularly the state government from deep slumber over the years and miserably failed to formulate concrete policy aimed to the safety of the commuters ? Is it that the concerned traffic authorities have no concern for the lives lost or that they take the things as a matter of routine happening? What the huge deployment of traffic sleuths are doing on the roads? Passengers often see them negotiating with transport operators at different points on the road and simply share with themselves the unholy nexus between them desperately.
They appealed to the Governor to immediately release Rs. 5 Lakh as ex gratia relief in favour of Kins of all the deceased & to look seriously in to all these irregularities which have not so far been controlled sternly. We humbly request to HisExcelency the Governor to initiate enquiries into all types of irregularities including wrong Surveys of roads, wrong constructions of roads etc in the Erstwhile Doda District and a stern action be taken against the defaulters, All the outdated vehicles should be immediately banned from plying on the roads & The traffic sleuths should be strictly watched so that they do not compromise with the drivers regarding speed & overloading. The concerned authorities, public representatives & administration remain pre occupied with their own commissions and throw all other norms including safety angle to winds.
