    Tragic indeed. So many young lives wasted in the accident. Why don’t the Himachal government place perafits around Shimla when every year so many accidents happen in snow and rain. Isn’t it the duty of the government to safe guard the public? Or Toyota Corolla cars for the ministers are much more important for the government than public safety?

    Solely the PWD is responsible for such accidents where  paraphets are not provided on the roads. Things would be set right if the  top brass from the army of engineers is booked for dereliction of duty. It is extremely tragic to have lost so many young lives only for the fault on the part of  PWD who is just shameless.

    Till the time personal responsibility is not fixed of the PWD officials and the minister our youth will keep dying on Himachal roads. At this place if there were perafits were installed the mishap could have averted. As Gaurav mentioned above, the priorities of this govt. are all wrong. They are busy catering to themselves by buying latest cars and extracting every penny from the state exchequer.

    Only if such an tragedy happens in the family of these govt officials then only they will know what it is like to loose such young boys in the family.

    May God rest the departed souls in peace..!!
