A big debate has been sparked again after the death of Central Rural Development Minister Gopinath Munde in a road accident.
According to the latest data on road transport and Highway Ministry, more that 1 Lakh and 37 thousand people died in the road accident every year. Means that 477 people lost their lives in the road accident every day.
Besides these, neither Government not the citizens of India are taking any precaution for the safety purpose.
Road Transport specialist S P Singh said that the whole country is in shock because of the death of Gopinath Munde in a road accident. But no precaution is taken after all these accidents.
India is on no. 1 in the world in the case of deaths in the road accident. But still Central and State government is paying more attention in revenue recovery in place of the traffic management.
The biggest proof of this is that the motor vehicle PSLV has stuck from the year 2007 and the case of the road safety organization is also in pending state for so many years.
