Killer Roads: State has 300 ‹“black spots

Chandigarh, October 25
Punjab has at least 300 "black spots  that have been officially certified as "very high risk  status by the Roads and Bridges Development Board of the Public Works Department. On an average, 10 persons die in road accidents in the state daily. Ace comedian Jaspal Bhatti, unfortunately, happened to be one of them.

The car of Giani Zail Singh, former President, met with an accident in 1994. Capt Kanwaljit, former Finance Minister of Punjab, was killed in an accident near the accident prone T-point near Kharar in March 2009.

In terms of the Accident Security Index , " black spots  are areas that see "very frequent  accidents. These spots have a score of more than 30 points calculated on account of the nature of accident, its severity (death 6 points, non fatal 3 and minor1), frequency of accidents and other factors.

Importantly, at least 350 such spots existed more than five years back as pointed out in the Road Safety Audit carried out in 2007. Sources said not more than 50 such spots had been rectified till date. At least 40 more had been rendered "satisfactory . Of the total, at least 125 were located on national highways and the remaining on state and district highways.

The Punjab Police has prepared a list of at least 200 trouble spots based on ground accident data. The state list has in all 200 accident-prone spots. Amritsar district has at least 30 crucial points( among them Maqboolpura Chowk, Sangam Chowk, Sikandri Gate, Sadar Chowk and Ram Bagh Chowk), Batala has 36 , including the Jalandhar bypass, Shastri Nagar Mod, Beeko Mod, Amritsar Chowk, Dhir Mor Bypass, Simble Chowk and Maur Pind Kandial, and Gurdaspur has 20, including Bus stand Parmanand, Sekhupur Paper Mill, NFL Colony crossing and Nattan Wali Puli.

Certain road portions near the state capital have witnessed serious accidents in the past and continue posing problems to drivers. These include a portion of the road near Sunny Enclave in Ropar, the Blind T-Point near Landran that has no traffic lights, the Maur Bharopur T-Point and the old Rail Bridge in Sirhind.

People from all sections of the society, including actors, politicians and public figures, reached his house in Sector 19 to pay their last respects to the departed soul.

Right since the morning, Bhattis mother Dhyan Kaur and wife Savita Bhatti maintained a bshowed courage. However, they failed to control their emotions on seeing his body. Bhattis mother took his head in her lap, while his daughter Rabia and wife kept of wailing continuously.

Bhattis demise came as a shock for his neighbours too as they gathered outside his house to pay their last respects.

Bhatti's son Jasraj, who was at the wheel at the time of accident, was the first to reach his house on a stretcher from Dayanand Medical College, Ludhiana. He entered the house and was shocked to hear about his fathers demise. Jasraj broke down in tears as he saw his fathers body. Bhattis body was taken to the Sector 25 cremation ground where hundreds of people thronged to pay their last respects.

Behind his comic face, he was a courageous man

Chandigarh, October 25
"Behind his comic face, he was a courageous man,  says Savita Bhatti while recalling her 28-year-long journey with her husband Jaspal Bhatti. He always remained fearless and committed to his work, she adds.

"After the release of ‹“Mahaul Theek Hai in 1999, he got several threatening calls and it created a lot of tension in the family. But he did not bow down and continued to make films on issues which concerned him greatly,  says Savita.

Even his upcoming movie, Power Cut, had a few objectionable dialogues against politicians, but he did not remove them, she says.

Remembering him as a man who always gave her equal opportunities in his projects, Savita says it pains her that she will never be paired with him again.

Savita had talked to him last night. He was excited about the premier of his movie that was scheduled for today, she says. "Nobody knew that he would meet such a fate,  she says, with a chocking voice.
