11 hours of wait and watch show of death. 100s of viewers, 5 lifes were on bait and not even a single life got saved.
In the Khari river of Pali, Rajasthan, 5 people tried to cross the bridge on Indica car, but water got overflowed and high speed flood water trapped them all. 100s of people gathered near to river. They were watching them trying to survive in between the river. Very soon local police officials, army even the environment minister of Rajasthan was there on that tragic place. According to Environment Minister Dave they tried very hard to get those people out of that river. The victims were holding just one rope of bridge. They all came on the roof of car, were waiving their hands for help, they were crying. And one by one they became the victim of flood water. This complete episode runs for about 11 hours.
How tragic was the situation. Government had more then 10 hours to save the life of 5 common people. Only one crain or some divers were not the solution out there to pull them out of such a high tide water. I cant imagine that even one helicopter was not available to rescue them. In todays high-tech life, where India is able to compete with worlds power, doesn’t have any facility to rescue people out of flooded river that’s too when they have plenty of time. I ask a question if instead of those common guys some minister would have been stuck out there, were the complete system would let him go like those 5 innocent people.
On top of that just see how ministers are reacting on this tragic events. Environment Minister said police and local people ask those victims not to cross river as its risky. I agree they took the wrong step but that doesn’t means their life is not worthy enough to call emergency situation type rescue like chopper or some experts. Chief Minister of Rajasthan Vasundhara Raje Scindia saying that they have done the best. She stated that should a minister jump in such a high tide water to rescue them. Madam nobody is asking you to jump in water but at least things should be taken seriously.
