Letter Published in The National Uae on 3 Nov 13India should focus on public safety
I am commenting on the article Speeding Indian bus crashes, killing 45 in inferno (October 30). It’s a terrible tragedy. Bus accidents are not uncommon in India, but even by Indian standards, fatalities were very high.
Public transport in India is often unsafe. The governments of respective states need to do more to ensure the safety of people travelling by bus and taxi. Human lives are precious. The relatives of victims might receive compensation, but no amount can make up for the loss of lives. I pray for the victims.
