In his condolence message, Saroori has conveyed his sympathy to the bereaved families. He expressed deep concern and dismay over the recurring loss of lives from sustained road accidents in Chenab Valley. In this context, Mr. Saroori recalled the important discussions held in Assembly, in various meetings and house committee recommendations that need to be implemented on ground but unfortunately the reports and recommendations submitted by me before government is gathering dust.
The repeated road accidents in Doda, Kistwar, Ramban and Udhampur districts, Congress leader said, must be a grave concern for the state government. “It is a situation which demands immediate measures and attention of all of us especially the officers of transport, traffic police and Border Roads Organisation to put forward their departmental specific assignment of the causes responsible for causing accidents in these hilly districts,” he added.
Saroori hoped that the officers of various departments shall urgently enforce the strictest possible measures to reduce the incidence of tragic accidents.
