    In himachal road accidents are very common due to different reasons, It doesn’t matter the what was the reason but only relative can feel the loss of that person. here I want to sugest that as we are used to these accidents Govt should make more arrangements for the lives if possible like there should be full team with doctors medicine and beds and first aid kit like mobile hospital in single bus. A fully equiped bus mobile hospital with the Fire brigade and rescue equiped vehicle rather than shifting the patient to hospital like PGI journey for another 6 to 8 hours. If it is necessary to take patient to the PGI then the mode of transport should be chopper not the ambulance or other vehicle. we can save so many lives if emergecy vehicles are availabe in each district of himachal.

    To the poster above:
    Human life has no value here. Last example was the tragedy at Naina Devi temple. Lot many lives are lost every year in accidents and the authorities are content with expressing ‘deep grief and sorrow’.

    The choppers are meant for the VIP class, whether in green or red cap. Not for us, the cattle class.
