After facing tremendous opposition and hue and cry from the cross section of the people and the media, finally the chief minister of Uttarakhand has relented and exhibited stern posture towards the senior nost bureaucrats of Garhwal Uttarakhand holding them responsible for negligence and complacense towards the tragic accidental casualties at Nainidaanda block, which shockingly claimed 48 precious lives of innocent commuters on 1st of July sending shock waves in the entire himalayan state and the country. Showing tremendous seriousness in the whole episode after declaring compensation of rupees two lakhs to each of family of the deceased and visiting the severly injured at DHUMAKOT hospital the deeply concerned T. S. Rawat has without wasting anytime transferred the Garhwal range commissioner Mr. Jawalkar and Deputy Inspector General of Police Pushpak Jyoti else where in order to pacify the anger and annoyance of the common masses.
He also held Transport Tax Officer Nihal Jha and Dhuma Kot Police Station Incharge Mr. Kathaith directly respinsible for the lapses and transferred them from their present positions. This is perhaps for the first time that the chief minister Rawat has shown guts to take these hard decisions after this massive tragedy of Nainidaanda block that claimed 48 precious lives. There have been over 60 or more deaths in the entire state in various accidents this month in different localities given an unambiguous impression that negligence and complacense at the level of the erring drivers and the officials of the concerned departments have been the core reasons behind these tragic happenings.
Though accidents had been occuring in the Uttarakhand state since a long time especially during the Yatra seasons in view of the heavy traffic movement, over loading of buses, uncontrolled fast driving, existence of pot holes on the roads and several other reasons like drivers in inebriated conditions etc but never had there been such a huge casualties as was in the case of the NAINIDAANDA block accident killing 48 passengers on the spot in a single go. Even the prime minister of the country Narendra Modi and the union home minister have issued statements expressing their grief and condolences towards the bereaved families thus compelling the state administration to gear itself up to counter the critical situation by announcing immediate compensation of Rs two lakh each to the families of the deceaseds’ and holding the commisioner Garhwal range and DIG responsible for various lapses thus transferring them elsewhere.
A magisterial enquiry has also been ordered in this episode to find the actual reasons behind the accident and holding officials responsiblefor utter negligence and failure to perform their requisite duties. Meanwhile about nine bodies of the deceaseds of this accident have been consigned to flames and the rest are in pipeline after the completion of necessary technical formalities like post mortom etc.
While we extend our heartfelt condolences to bereaved families we are of the strong opinion that had the government been seriously concerned and shown vigilance as it has now, such accidents could have been be avoided and averted quite before. The transferred Commisioner of Garhwal range Jawalkar will temperorily look after the charge of Tourism and some other departments whereas Pushpak Jyoti would be incharge of SIT as its DIG. Shailesh Bagoli has taken charge as Garhwal Commisioner and Ajay Rautela would be the new DIG in place of Pushpak Jyoti.
Six year old killed by a maneater in Bageshwar, Uttarakhand ! Predator grabs the girl from her house compound, dies on way to hospital
Uttarakhand seems to have been cursed by natural calamities, fatal road accidents and incessant attacks of maneaters claiming lives after lives almost after every alternate days and what is worse is the fact that there seems to be no relief from the government’s side to the utter shock, dismay and despair of the people living there. If one goes into the statistics of maneater killings in the hills of Uttarakhand which are not maintained duly one would be surprised and shocked to find the increasing rate of the predator killings going on unabated with the forest department, wild life and the minister concerned doing little or negligible to set right the situation.
Newsviewsnetwork has just yesterday written on the subject in addition to several other earlier writeups mentioning about the increasing prowl of the maneater leopards and tigers for human flesh near roadsides and houses situated near the forest areas and subsequent killings of children, old aged and women in Garhwal and Kumaon divisions of Uttarakhand.
According to a journalist, activist and an author Chandra Shekhar Joshi living in Uttarakhand, a maneater in search of human flesh literally grabbed a 6 year old girl from her house in Nadi village of Bageshwar, Uttarakhand at 8.30 PM and tried to drag her towards the forest. The brave and desperate terrified family members were however successful in snatching the injured girl from the grip of the predator but could not survive while being ferried to the hospital which took near an hours’ time.
The dead girl was playing in the compound of her house when the maneater cladestinely grabbed her by the jaws and started dragging her to the near by forest when the desperate members of the family snatched her from the grip of the tiger profusely bleeding after deep jaw injuries. Chandra Shekhar said that on 3rd September too a maneater in Katyur Valley’s Salamgarh village a four year old daughter of Chatur Singh Parihar was cladestinely taken by the maneater who left her badly mutilated dead body after eating it in the nearby rivulet found the next evening.
Similarly on 24th March and 12th July these carnivorous animals killed two children aged 3 and 7 years respectively afyer dragging them to the nearby jungles namely Karan Ram and Deepak. It’s really disheartening to note that while the villages of Uttarakhand are constantly being emptied due to the incessant influx of the villagers to cities and metropolises in search of job avenues, health facilities and better quality education for their wards, the villages are being dominated by animals such as wild monkeys, pigs and maneaters who are on the prowl for human flesh with the state government agencies literally doing nothing to set right the situation by safeguarding the lives of the remaing inhabitants in villages and towns near the forest areas in particular.
About 155 leopards and tigers have been declared as maneaters in Uttarakhand hills while about 350 people have been killed roughly by maneaters in various areas of Uttarakhand. However the wild life department pleasingly boasts of the increasing number of tigers in Uttarakhand hills teaching more than 400 in numbers.

Delhi government hospitals need more registration and medicine delivery counters including more clinics
Though the AAM ADMI PARTY government in Delhi has done a remarkable work in terms of improving and modernising the health services in the Delhi’s various government hospitals, dispensaries, health centres and poly clinics for which the Delhi chief minister deserves Kudos, there is still a need for improvising the conditions and delivery system by way of enhancing the number of registration and medicine delivery counters, pharmacists and doctors, particularly in view of the rapidly increasing numbers of poor and lower middle class patients thronging the government hospitals on daily basis.
The hospitals despite rendering maximum possible services to cater to the good number of patients also lack good hyginic and sanitary conditions which need to be attended on a mass footing so as to keep them neat and clean and prone to better health conditions of one and all attending these health institutions. The AAP government Delhi deserves all round appreciation for targetting the health and education sector for improving the peoples’lot and also shaping the academic career of the students hailing from the poor, down trodden and the economically deprived sections of the society.
Today, the government schools of Delhi have been upgraded from the infrastructural, educational and basic civic facilities point of view and so have the condition of government hospitals, dispensaries and the polyclinics where not only are the poor and general patients are being delivered free medicines, treatments and free expensive tests and diagnosis but the Delhi government has also permitted every section of the society free of cost treatment and surgery of critical ailments in private hospitals if the same is not being executed in the Delhi govt hospitals, the cost of which will be borne by the government.
In addition the Delhi CM has authorised few Delhi government hospitals like Delhi Tegh Bahadur hospital for giving 80% treatmentto be given to the Delhites and 20% to the patients of outside states as previously the medical interest of Delhi patients were being largely affected. Today, I happened to visit the Dr. Ambedkar Hospital and Medical Institute , a hundred bedded hospital in Rohini where I saw hundreds of uncontrolled crowd of poor and hapless patients standing in unending queues anxiously waiting for registration, medicines and check ups outside the counters and doctors clinics quarrelling and creating acrimonious scenes.
The queues were so long that it takes hours to get the needful done. Since the expectation of the patients, particularly, of the poor and the lower middle class have been generated too much after the facilities generated in the govt hospitals the influx of patients have increased manifold and as such the latter doe not seem to be fully equipped to cope with the increasing rush of the patients which would ultimately result in lessening of the quality of treatment and much inconvenience to the Delhites banking on government hospitals for seeking free treatment.
The government of the NCT should therefore emphasise much on increasing the number of registration and medicine delivery counters including enhancement in number of clinics, doctors and pharmacists componded with various facilities like provision of sitting arrangements, fans, water coolers and if possible airconditioning of the inner areas of the hospital buildings. This revamp in the entire system would improve the present aweful situation and relieve the poor, hapless and suffering patients and their families to a great extent.
It may be recalled that the former Secretary General of United Nations and Senior officials of WHO had recently visited various Mohalla polyclinics established by AAM AADMI PARTY government in Delhi and have widely appreciated it as a model to be replicated by the other developing and under developed countries of the globe.

Maneaters freely prowl for human flesh on Uttarakhand’s roadsides in the night
This how maneaters/ predators move openly on the roadside areas of entire Uttarakhand as seen in the above picture clicked by me from a facebook vedio of Gopal Rawat.
The tiger here is seen relaxing during the night hours on one of the roadside cemented structure looking for the human prey.
These are common scenes on the roads of the inner peripheries of Uttarakhand, particularly on the roads inside the forest areas after 8.00 PM in the night when you can witness these predators either on the roadside cemented structures ( puliyas) or in the middle of the lonely roads relaxing comfortably unless some vehicle comes and waits for these canivorous animals to slowly get up n go on the sides of the roads waiting for the vehicles to pass away.
But what is more surprising and worrisome aspect of these maneaters is that in some of the areas they even appear on roadsides during noon or just before sunset clandestinely looking for a lonely human prey like child, old aged or a woman.
In several cases these hungry leopards having tasted human blood and flesh exclusively look for prey in the road side houses and grab the children by even entering human habitats and thereafter taking them to the nearby jungles to eat.
There have been umpteen intances of such brutal killings of human beings during the past several months and years in the Garhwal and Kumaon divisions of Uttarakhand.
The forest department finds itself helpless as the courts have applied legal brakes on the killings of these predators. Moreover the department of wildlife does not possess enough equipments or know how to physically capture these maneaters except the primitive methods which are too tardy and ineffective.
Even for killing some of the highly dangerous maneaters it takes lot of time to seek the permission ofthe court and thereafter tardy killing process to hire professional and expensive shooters. By that time enough harm is already done to human lives.
As per the latest survey carried out by the Tiger count department about more than 400 tigers of different speices exists in the Uttarakhand Jungles that include majorly the Corbett and other national parks.
On an approximate estimate about 150 leopards/ tigers in Uttarakhand hills have been declared man eaters who’s from 2000 till now as per the current official estimate till May 2016 killed / eaten 300 human beings, though the figure in actuality still stands higher.
As per the news report of 23rd September 2016 leopards killed about 440 people in the Nepal and Kumaon areas after a prominent Shooter of the British era killed the maneater for the first time in 1907.
It is believed that about 40 to 50 maneaters have been killed so far in Uttarakhand after their human killing spree continued for several decades.
However, the maneater attacks in various parts of Uttarakhand have become a routine affair for these carnivorous animals as there seems to be dearth of animal preys inside the forests of Uttarakhand which have become the victim of excessive sound pollution, tourist activities, movement of vehicles, roads, commercial buildings, shops and hotels construcion of concrete houses and buildings including huge dams, tunnels and deforestation.
The increasing use of dynamites in road explosions and increasing natural calamities are also some of the prime reasons for imbalancing the wild life and their subsequent dissapearence from the forest ultimately resulting in the carnivorous animals to come towards human settlements and make them their easy prey.

Where is Rajiv’s and Rahul’s close family friend and advisor?
Where is Captain Satish Sharma these days, a septuagenerian now and till recently a close aide of Nehru Gandhi family, the former MP and one time the right hand man, a politician looking after the Amethi affairs of Rajiv Gandhi and thereafter Rahul Gandhi ,the then prime minisyer, his close aide and advisor. Captain Satish Sharma was the former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi’s class mate in Doon school and as such was brought in active politics as the RS and elected MP who assisted him in all his constituency related affairs and other mattersof political significance.
Captain Satish Sharma was union minister of Petroleum and Chemicals during the Congress regime at the centre who was generous enought to oblige too many Congressmen and even his driver and ministerial staff to allot petrol pumps and gas agencies the case for which was filed in the apex court of India, now in low profile, perhaps settled. Politics is strange.
When a politician is a high up or popular close to the political hierchy he or sheis adored and valued like anything. But when in oblivion no one cares to bother for him or her. A closest family friend, an advisor and the most trusted one time MP and Congressman and a keen n trusted friend of Rajiv Gandhi today is in political oblivion in his Mehrauli farm house with his french wife. Reliable sources reveal that this important family member and Rajiv’s and his family’s close aide is today suffering from acute problem of a maligned ulcer and is under treatment of senior doctors. An septuagenerian Captain Satish Sharma has been in political oblivion for the last four years and nobody in Congress or political fraternity has ever cared to know about his well being.
As per the reliable source, an ex MP who’ do not want to be named Captain Sharma is suffering from a serious ulcer problem for the ladt several months having become serious under the regular monitering and medical care of senior doctors. Today, he is in political oblivion and recuperating in his house in total lonliness. It may be recalled that when Rahul Gandhi joined active politics as the general secretary of the All India Congress Committee and theteafter as the prime minister afterthe sad demise, assasination of his mother he brought his Doon School friends Captain Satish Sharma, Ahmed Patel, Arun Singh, Mani Shanlar Aiyyer and Suman Dubey as his trusted leuitinents in politics to assist him. While senior journalist Suman Dubey and Arun Singh, former Defence minister sought retirement from active politics Ahmed Patel, Satish Sharma and Mani Shankar Aiyyer remained active in future Congress politics even after Rajiv Gandhi’s assasination.
However, today while Ahmed Patel is still in Sonia Gandhi’s and Rahul’s good books, Mani Shanker Aiyyer is out due to a political controversy and Captain Satosh Sharma seriously ill and politically isolated. What’s yourtake friends?
PM Narendra Modi participates in a cleanliness drive. Ropes’ in Amitabh and Ratan Tata in Swach Bharat Abhiyan
The prime minister of India Narendra Modi has personally sweeped the a small portion of an area with a broom in a school in Paharganj Delhi and literally participated in the Swach Bharat Abhiyan part 2 by lifting the rubbish by his hands sending a message accross that every Indian should participate in the cleanliness drive to make the country clean and hygienic, devoid of deseases and various ailments.
The prime minister also spoke to industrialist Ratan Tata and popular cine actor n former MP from Allahabad Amitabh Bachchan, calling him the super hero of the millenium, involving them in his quest to keep India neat and clean.
The government appointed Amitabh Bachchan as the Ambassador of the Swach Bharat Abhiyan 2, his flagship programme under which about 430 districts of the country have been fully equipped with toilets claims PM Modi.
Meanwhile today, the prices of petrol and diesal again witnessed an increase adding to the woes of countrymen.
It was indeed a novel initiative by the prime minister to interact with the star of a millenium as pronounced by PM Modi, Amitabh Bachchan and Ratan Tata through tele conferencing and seek their support and participation in the Swach Bharat Abhiyan 2 and seek their opinion to mobilise people of this country in the mission.
The prime minister requested Amitabh to share his views on TV screen which he did by thanking the PM and narrating various incidents regarding his contribution in the cleanliness drive on Varsova Beach of Mumbai by donating an expensive machine to dig out rubbish, plastic and garbage dumped inside the beach and a tractor to transport the accumulated plastic and rubbish in the garbage dumps to the outskirts of the city in Mumbai.
Amitabh said: individual participation in the cleanliness mission is more significant than depending on the various government agencies.
It may be recalled that the Swach Bharat Abhiyan was initiated for the first time as a clean India initiative by prime minister Narendra Modi to pay tributes to the father of the nation on his 150th birth anniversary on 2nd October 2014 in the length and bredth of the country as a national movement.The campaign aims to achieve the vision of a ‘Clean India’ by 2nd October 2019.
The Swachh Bharat Abhiyan is the most significant cleanliness campaign by the Government of India. Shri Narendra Modi led a cleanliness pledge at India Gate, which about thirty lakh government employees across the country joined.
He also flagged off a walkathon at Rajpath and surprised people by joining in not just for a token few steps, but marching with the participants for a long way.
However, despite so much of stress in the programme considered as a flagship mission of prime minister Modi and incurring of hundreds of crores in its publicity not much has been achieved at the national level.
Even in the capital city of India one can easily find the garbage dumps filled with filth and garbage openly lying on roads, public toilets completely uncleaned giving a foul smell, drains full of garbage dumps, govt hospital in unhyginic conditions, residential and market areas, particularly streets uncleaned and external areas of even metro stations full of rubbish and garbage dumps.
The malnourished poor children involved in segregating garbage for their livelyhood can be conveniently seen in various Dhalaos and dumps in extremely pitiable sorry state with nobody caring for their survival and avademic future.
There is literally no achievement at the decentralised level despite so much of noise and government sponsered publicity involving hundreds of crores of the tax payers money for branding political images of leaders and political establishment than actually carrying out Swach Bharat Abhiyan in practical on the ground.
However, prime minister Modi’s initiative is worth laudable and the countrymen should follow suit.
Special emphasis should be laid on the various municipal corporations of the country to enhance staff and earnestly expedite the cleanliness drive at every nook and corners ofeachn every ward at the decentralized level to make the prime minister’s flagship programme areal success but sorry to say itsmore on papers, televisions than on the gound.

COME ON FRIENDS, LET’S HELP CHANDRA MOHAN UNIYAL
COME ON FRIENDS, LET’S HELP CHANDRA MOHAN UNIYAL
Though there might be hundreds of thousands of non governmental organisations in Delhi and the country, several of them even doing yeomen service by helping the poor and the needy but it’s usually experienced that when some one is in actual need of such NGOs’ they hardly come forward to do the needful.
Would anyone come forward to to help the traumatic family of Chandra Mohan Uniyal hailing from Tehri Garhwal, Uttarakhand who unfortunately met with a serious accident on the midnight of 23d August, 2018 after being severely hit by an unknown vihicle which elapsed from the scene after grievously injuring the victim?
Injured Uniyal was ferried to hospital by the police team in th ambulance and addmitted in Apollo Hospital, Sarita Vihar, Delhi.
The accident victim is in the unconscious state of COMA due to excessive blood clottings in the brain.
The doctors attending on Uniyal have advised immediate surgery of the brain to take out the blood clots.
But the surgeons are not sure whether the patient will fully improve even after the surgery or would continue to be in the vegetative state.
Chandra Mohan Uniyal hails from a poor family and his wife and children live in village Kafna, post office: Silka Khal, Tehri, Garhwal, Uttarakhand.
Chandra Mohan worked as an office boy in Faridabad. However, Uniyal’s boss had been kind enough to take care of the entire hospital expenses including the surgery.
But where would Uniyal recuperate after surgery and being relieved is a moot question as his family is in the village and it would be too risky for such patients under critical condition to be taken to village for after surgery care.
If any person known to any such competent NGO taking care of such patients read’s this news item is kindly requested to contact on the following mail immediately.
Those who are desirous of helping this patient in dire need of financial help may also do the needful after corresponding and verifying things at the given mail address.

THE 108 AMBULANCE SERVICES ARE IN A “MESS” IN UTTARAKHAND SAY PEOPLE
The 108 ambulance services in Uttarakhand which are meant to safeguard the lives of patients by ferrying them to the nearby hospitals in time fully equipped with all the necessary life saving first aid equipments and facility of the oxygen cylinders etc are themselves in somewhat dying stage which are usually not available in time to the accidental victims as well as the victims of critical illnesses in villages and local hospitals in the nearby district headquarter.
There have been incidents of even deaths of patients suffering from severe critical illnesses particularly because of severe lung’s complications or cardilogical problems while being ferried to the nearby district hospitals like Kotdwar etc from villages due to the shortage and non availability of oxygen cylinders.
Several cases of pregnant women being carried on the make shift temperory carriages to hospitals by people in the absence of 108 ambulances have been reported including the sorry incidents when the women groaning in massive pains are compelled to deliver babies on the way in extremely pitiable conditions.
This is shocking n really horrible. How can there be such a deadly laxity despite the fact that the state government claims of a hefty health budget.
In some cases there are complaints of Ambulances not being available due to the shortage of fuel. In order to substantiate the complaint of increasing shortage of Ambulances and its complacent services to those in need during critical times like fatal accidents etc the non availability of the 108 Ambulance service at the Devprayag site in Pauri/ Srinagar Garhwal area in Uttarakhand in due time has resulted in the death of a victim with another being grievously injured who could not be ferried to the hospital in time in view of the non availability of the 108 ambulance service.
The ambulance available in the Devprayag district hospital is in a sorry condition completely defunct and non functional.
The people of Devprayag Garhwal had been the victim of the non availability of 108 ambulances as are the inhabitants of other partsof the Uttarakhand hills.
The affected inhabitants have reported the lapses to the concerned health authorities as well to the local MLA Mr. Kandari, the nephew of the former BJP lawmaker and Minister Matbar Singh Kandari but of no avail.
The matter was even discussed in the Block Development Committee meeting and the concerned officers had given every possible assurances but the situation is still to square one.
Actually no officer or official in Uttarakhand except the negligible few, wanted to work because everybody is integrally involved, hand in globe in corrupt practices.
According to a latest news a car fell several metres down in a gorge today morning killing a Village Khola resident Veeru Ghildiyal near Dev Prayag, Garhwal, who could have been saved had the 108 Ambulance service of Devprayag hospital been in a movable condition with life saving equipments. Another person suffered serious injuries who could be ferried in a private conveyance after the army personel reached the spot.
There are three pictures above: Pic (1) An injured lying down groaning in pain waiting for the ambulance at Devprayag after being injured. Pic (2) A pregnant women outside a hospital who delivered the baby on the walking bridge with blood splattered around and Pic (3) The ICU 108 ambulance.
The lake of Mansarovar is so gentle, tranquil n calm that there is no hatred: Rahul Gandhi
The Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s picture on social media are going viral showing himself posing for photographs singularly as well as with the co travellers of historic Mansarovar Yatra.
Seen smiling in a dark brown jacket with little grown beard Rahul Gandhi has also posted interesting pictures of snow clad Kailash mountain and the mesmerising Mansarovar lakes in his twitter handle tweeting that it is so humbling to be walking on the shawdow of this giant and the lake is so gentle and calm that there is no hatred here.
Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday paid glowing tributes to Kailash Mansarovar, saying there was no hatred at the holy place.
Currently on the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra, Rahul again tweeted, “The waters of lake Mansarovar are so gentle, tranquil and calm. They give everything and lose nothing. Anyone can drink from them. There is no hatred here. This is why we worship these waters in India.” Rahul.Gandhi also annexed pictures of the historic lake and the Kailash mountain the abode of Lord Shiva.
It is learnt that Rahul Gandhi walked over 34 kilometres on the mountaineous route at Kailash Mansarovar on Thursday for incessantly 13 hours before reaching his tent.
He posed for photographs with his co pilgrims who acknowleged an awesome opportunity to be in the close proximity of a Nehru Gandhi scion and a prime minister in waiting irrespective of prediction of a definite year or time in the years to come.
It may be recalled that the ruling BJP has raised tremendous controversy on Rahul Mansarovar visit holding a special press conference in New Delhi party headquarter where its spokes person Sambit Patra questioned the Congress president’s meetings with Chinese leaders prior to his Mansarovar sojourn.
Patra had asked the Congress Party leader to reveal the names of the Chinese leaders he’s going to confabulate with during his secret meeting. Rahul was branded as the Chinese mouth piece by Patra, who preferred to clandestinely meet the Chinese Ambasssador at New Delhi during the Doklam crisis to accquaint himself of the impasse than to meet the external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj or the Indian NSA.
SUPREME COURT DECRIMINALISES ARTICLE 377 ! LEGALISES GAY SEX BETWEEN TWO CONSENTING ADULTS
The Apex court of the country today in one of its landmark verdicts’ legalised the gay sex allowing homosexuality thus decriminalising it.
The Supreme Court has today given a revolutionery decision on the same sex decriminalising it thus giving huge relief to the LGBT community throughout India.
According to the counsel for the LGBT community Advocate Grover fighting for decriminalising same sex for the last 21 years termed the decision of the apex court as historic and said that homosexuality is not a criminal activity nor is it an activity of a deranged mind. Gay sex amongst the consenting adults is not criminal ordered the supreme court.
The court has given the LGBT community the freedom and legality for the consensual same sex within the four walls but has held it illegal and against law practicing it in the public places.
The entire LGBT community has celebrated the decision of Apex court by merry making , dancing and singing.
There are approximately about 4.6 lakh LGBT in the country. It may be recalled that under article 377 devised during the British era Homosexuality was considered as unnatural and a criminal act and was being opposed since more than two decades by the gays.
The Congress leader and former union minister Shash Tharoor has hailed the verdict of the apex court by saying that nobody has the right to infringe on the rights of persons on the basis of gender inequality.
Freedom of sex within the same gender can’t be termed as a criminal or unnatural act when it is consensual and within the four walls he added. He termed the verdict as progressive and heartily welcomed it.
The BJP leader and senior Advocate n former law minister Dr. Subramaniam Swamy spoke against the Apex courts verdict calling it a verdict against an unnatural act which is not in consonance with the natural, dignified and cultural traditions of India.
However no senior or junior leader of the Bhartiya Janata Party or Congress have issued any statement or tweet welcoming or opposing the apex court verdict on article 377 decriminalising the same sex and aloowing the gay sex within four walls terming it as legal as used to be earlier when the leaders of both these parties used to tweet before time downgrading each other on every single important issue.
Actually every party and its leader wants to keep itself aside from this issue as it more or less concerns a very small population of the country hardly affecting the vote bank politics.
Five Dead and 21 injured when a GMOU bus falls in a gorge near Gairsain, Garhwal, Uttarakhand
News are pouring in that yet again a fatal accident has occured on Ram Nagar Badrinath Road when a bus with 26 passengers heading towards Gairsain, Garhwal fell into a 120 metres deep gorge killing five commuters on the spot and injurung over 21 seriously having addmitted in the local hospital.
According to the reports and dispatch from JNN the Garhwal Mandal Owners Union bus number UK- 04, PA- 0126 with about 26 passengers which left for Gairsain fell in the deep gorge at 3.00 PM afternoon near Sendhra Rivulet, ( Almora) near Garudkhet, while plying on Ram Nagar Badrinath Road.
About 21 passengers were seriously injured while 5 died on the spot. The reason for the accident is being given as failure of the brakes due to which the bus went out of control and skidded into the 120 metres gorge being badly damaged and splintered into pieces like the pack of cards taking several acrobatics.
The grievously injured passengers were rescued by the local police and the rescue teams with the help of the local villagers.
It may be recalled that fatal road accidents and the buses and vehicle falling in gorge have become a regular feature in Uttarakhand primarily due to brake failures, bad conditions of roads full of pot holes and due to landslides.
Just two days ago a tempo traveller fell into a deep gorge after the landslide n in July 2 about 48 passengers killed when an over crowded bus met with a fatal accident n fell in a gorge on Ram Nagar Road while going towards Dhumakot.
May the Almighty give peace to the departed souls and enough strength to the bereaved families to bear this irreperable grave loss.
