Early Times Report
JAMMU, Nov 18: Zeeshan Rana, Additional Spokesperson of J&K National Conference today raised serious concern over the loss of precious lives in road accidents in Jammu and Kashmir, seeking urgent measures by the administration to curb such mishaps which have reached to an alarming proportion in the state. In a statement issued here today, the senior NC leader asserted the alarming increase in the road accidents has become a talk of town these days in Jammu and Kashmir and it is very shocking because it leads to the killings of the innocent precious lives and also injuries to many. Unfortunately J&K is facing road accidents almost daily and it is a cause of utmost and grave concern to the government of the Union Territory and the general public as well. Hundreds of precious lives are lost in these road accidents which is very sad, infact these accidents take a heavy toll of precious human lives, he said.
"The road accidents took place everywhere in Jammu and Kashmir and innocent human lives are lost in these road accidents. During the last one year there has been a steep increase in road accidents in J&K with a large number of the people losing their lives as a result of the accidents and falling victim to these accidents," Rana added. Referring to media reports which claim that around 5036 accidents happened in J&K last year 2021 in which 713 persons were killed and 6447 were injured, terming the figures extremely disturbing. The official statistics have revealed that at least 9,126 persons have died and 75,616 injured in 54,742 road mishaps between 2010 and 2018 across J&K. How unfortunate is that J&K has been ranked second in India vis-à-vis road accidents with an average of over 900 deaths every year," he questioned.
The NC leader asserted that the authorities sitting at the helm of affairs have miserably failed to curb majority of road accidents which took place due to rash driving, negligence of drivers and bad condition of roads, especially in hilly and mountainous districts of Jammu and Kashmir. He asserted that there is dire need to check fake licence holders and outdated vehicles on the roads of hilly districts to avoid tragic road accidents. Zeeshan Rana appealed to the Lt Governor to look into matter serious as it's a question of live of a common man who are travelling on roads. Government should immediately frame a committee to review the tragic road accidents so that such accidents can be avoided in near future, he added.
