The initiative focused on the 30 year old Motor Vehicles Act 1988 which require immediate amendment to address tremendous changes in the road safety scenario in India.
Led by Member of Parliament, Parvesh Verma, road crashes victims and their families members, Civil Society Organisations, and partner organisations of road safety coalition highlighted the terrible state of road safety in the country at the workshop which was held on Tuesday
Mr Verma, Member of Parliament, stated, ''I am the victim and faced the same situation like any other survivor present at the national event on road safety. As you know, my father (Former Delhi Chief Minister Sahib Singh Verma ) lost his life in a tragic road crash. Each and every life is important and we must do everything possible to save. Our Government under leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is trying its best for road safety and I am sure that the proposed Motor Vehicles Amendment Bill will strengthen the road safety situation in India. I am joining road crash survivors to appeal the Prime Minister to make road safety as a national priority and get the MVA Bill passed on priority.''
Speaking on the occasion, Mr Ashim Sanyal COO, Consumer VOICE, said, ''Every crash leaves an indelible scar on the family and the community, but the daily crashes are making society numb and reducing these to just statistics. We have therefore brought together survivors of horrific road crashes and their families to tell their tales along with civil society organisations to join together in our appeal.''
