Rescue sources had said that the killed and wounded were members of a family who were travelling from Larkana to Kandh Kot.
It is a daily routine news. Accident, so many died, so many injured. The caues and blame is on the Driver/s. Neither said anything of the condition of the roads or their maintenance for which millions are allocated and all know where it goes. The very construction of the roads is faulty and the material used does not stay even for a month. So ? Who is to be blamed ? Even if the PPP Government opposing deployment of Rangers in the Interior of Sind where criminals seek refuge after committing crimes in the cities – specially Karachi, the Government has done nothing for the Thar children dying of starvation or rural development. Only meetings in the Drawing rooms or a pilgrimage to Dubai – making the dynastic rule more visible. A veru shameful situation.
