Lessons from the tragedy
The Madhya Pradesh Government has suspended its four senior officers in connection with the tragic bus accident in Sidhi district that has claimed several lives.
The bodies of 51 people were recovered after an overcrowded bus lost control and plunged into a water-filled canal. People alleged that the diversion from its permitted route to avoid traffic jams and bad roads led to the tragedy. The need of the hour is that the State Government should take a lesson from this human tragedy and build up a strong mechanism to curb road accidents.
