A deadly inferno

A massive fire in the Indian Oil Corporation depot in the Sitapura Industrial Area on the outskirts of Jaipur on Thursday night has left six officials dead and over 150 people injured. A leak in the pipeline was suspected to have caused the fire.

I think this incident took place due to lack of management

The necessity of having a competent rescue team is very much essential. Immediately after every such incident, our leaders come out with several proposals including setting up of special task force, compensation to the victims kins and so on.But till date neither has the task force been constituted nor has the compensation reached the deserving people.

India should not be the example of major disasters like this, starting from Bhopal.

India as a whole lacks disaster management and safety management skills causing huge loss to life and damage to property.

This shows the incapability, weakness and the unpreparedness of the Indian Government to handle such incidents.
