New Delhi : A lot has been heard about parties lending their support to Bharat Bandh on Monday (September 10). The supporters came on roads and forced states to remain shut to teach a lesson to the government for allegedly not taking suitable action against the rising fuel prices and depreciating Indian currency value against the US dollar. But, before anything could be solved or remain unsolved, a two-year-old kid has surely lost her life as an ambulance failed to find a way out from road blockade done by the 'Bharat Bandh' supporters in Bihar.
Her parents, with tears in their eyes, say her child could have been saved if she had managed to reach the hospital on time. But who cares? The answer is a 'Noone'; because people dying in ambulances in not new or important for the protesters who have been raising their voices against rising prices of fuel which apparently is not even in the hands of anyone due to global oil crisis.
People have lost their lives earlier, and the death of this poor girl is just an addition to it. No party will ever come forward to take the claim or even support the family. Instead, what may happen is that we might find some leader boasting about how successfully they stopped everything from functioning on the 'Bharat Bandh' day.
With a huge disappointment over the death, it can only be seen that opposition parties have mastered the art of protest be it in assembly or on roads, with no motive of finding a solution to the real problems.
