Srinagar April 17 (KNS): Jammu and Kashmir RTI Movement has expressed deep anguish over the loss of life in Gandbal area where a boat capsized yesterday early morning 

"It is a tragic and inconsolable loss which could have been averted" said  Dr Raja Muzaffar Bhat Chairman RTI Movement in a statement issued to press 

No words are enough to express the pain and grief over the loss .Dr Muzaffar added .

RTI Movement has expressed  condolences with the bereaved families 

"We believe that this tragic incident could have been averted had there been no delay in construction of bridge which has been delayed for the last 15 years because of unknown reasons. We appeal the honourable LG to initiate enquiry, complete the construction of bridge on war footing basis and also deploy some boats of SDRF /NDRF in that patch so that the rescue operations are conducted on time should there be any such eventuality in future" reads statment 

We have been pressing for taking elected representatives and civil society to be taken on board before initiating any developmental or beautification work but but the same has been ignored not only by the present dispensation but previous active governments as well.(KNS)
