�No rules for commercial vehicles�

By Staff reporter

GUWAHATI, May 24 � Condoling the death of twelve people in the tragic road accident at Dudhnoi on Saturday night, public activist Deven Dutta has come down heavily on the Tarun Gogoi government for its alleged anathema in strictly enforcing the law.

Describing the accident as a reflection of the inefficiency of the government celebrating its fourth year in office, Dutta said that had the government been sincere in enforcing the legal provisions in connection with plying of commercial vehicles, such an unfortunate incident would not have occurred.

Pointing out that rules for commercial vehicles were never strictly enforced across the State and in the capital city, Dutta said that this had encouraged commercial vehicles to create anarchy on the roads. �Flouting the rules has become the norm for commercial vehicles which has led to an increase in road accidents,� said Dutta. Criticizing the role of the Transport Minister, Dutta said that the present state of affairs in the transport department was reflective of the corruption and inefficiency of the Transport Minister. Without mincing words, Dutta said that in the entire country, there would not be another one to match the inefficiency and corruption of the State Transport Minister.

Dutta also slammed the Opposition for its alleged silence over the anarchy prevailing on the roads. �No one in the Opposition criticizes the government for the increasing road accidents. The Opposition�s silence over this matter is an issue to ponder over,� said Dutta.

Dutta even castigated the student organisations for not taking up the issue of violation of rules by the commercial vehicles. He observed that many in the Opposition and many student leaders were owners of such commercial vehicles and that was the sole reason for their silence.

Referring to the chaotic traffic situation in the capital city that was compounded by the entry of commercial vehicles in violation of the rules, Dutta suggested that the government would do better by getting rid of the post of the City SP (Traffic).
