Citizens outrage over death of Darshini Rasta roko for over 2 hours

Students of various colleges, workers from near by factories, industrialists and citizens expressed their outrage over the death of Darshini Chougule in an accident on Monday. She was overtaking a heavy vehicle when a pot hole made her loose balance and she was caught under the rear tyre of the vehicle. Another girl is also seriously injured.

Bella Vista Belagavi

The outrage was spontaneous and each one had that feeling that it was Darshini and it could be anyone else tomorrow.
The movement of heavy traffic from that road is common as it is part of NH4A.

After a 2 hour rasta roko Additional deputy commissioner came and informed that DC has directed that from October 1, heavy vehicles will not be allowed to ply during specific times.
Industrialists were very angry on the slow pace of work and even one person offered money so that it could be used to fill the potholes.

Speaking to AAB Deepak Dhaodti who was very vexed and said that now nothing can be left upon the govt. if we have to survive we will have to help ourselves. He said the colleges and industrialists will have to pool in money to fill the potholes and build a temporary divider which will save a few lives.

He further said, in 37 accidents in the last 8 months 9 have been fatal . We cant wait for more student o person o loose his life.

The traffic police has been unable to provide any traffic constable due lack of personnel, hence colleges will device a plan where student volunteers can regulate traffic during peak hours.

  1. I am bit confused about the above Incident.. As i see 2 different stories – one which is mentioned above and other is leading Marathi Newspaper in BGM. What is going on??? why there is no sink about the Incident which took place..

  2. All MP, MLA’s, Ministers are busy with there work, leave them.
    if we implement these below rules we could reduce accidents
    1) Make Helmet compulsory for rider.
    2) Corporation should try to complete development works ASAP. ( It is possible at night time )
    3) Stop allowing heavy vehicles inside city during day time ( 8AM to 9PM)
    4) Make tough traffic rules with high penalty for breaking rules. First we citizen should know traffic rules and we have to follow those.
    5) Make public transport easy which will reduce traffic.

  3. It’s really really very sad moment for me.
    I just know the girl from my cousin that earlier they lived in front of my cousin home. I came from mumbai for 2 days on account of Ganesh chaturti. And heard this incident from my brother. The girl and her parents were known very well in bandurgalli area. And I seen her earlier photo.she is really very nice and cute girl. I was really badly hurt by this incident as I thought might I have a humanity relationship with her. Daughters are future vision of making India proud as they contribute as same as boys.
    I have also gone through belgaum goa highway just one day earlier the incident occur and seen the road is not wider for bigger vehicles to move at pace. Where as the soiled portion on. Both sides are somewhat ok, but the main pavement is not wider to pass bigger vehicles safely. Overtaking not allowed banners should be there on highway. And yes as all said helmet should make compulsory to all.
    One should not say wrong to government or anyone. As we the road user are equally responsible for the right usage of government services and facilities needed as safeguard for accidents. As an human case, like that small every individual is someone’s parent, or child, and as an human being we should say something to stop such important human loss. We all want our beloved nice daughter like darsdarshani to be allways our eye candy and future daughter for our nation. We love belgaum and hopes the positive attitude and right full things get chosen by everyone belgaumities. Darshini is allways with us.

  4. All colleges and institute should not allow students or any of the person to park their vehicle in parking area, if they don’t have valid license and not wearing helmet

  5. we people have a tendancy to point out others mistakes but are we doing our role right ? I do respect and whatever happened is really sad for all of us, but howmany of us actually wear safety during riding/driving our vehicles, its very sad that out of most states I saw, belgaum is least bothered about safety, hardly 1 out of 20 riders wear helmets, forget pillions. you can band your head only once. wear helmets, they do save lives.
    be safe. ride/drive safe.

  6. If we implement below rules then we could reduce such accidents.

    1) Make Helmet compulsory for rider and pillion. It will save lot many lives.
    2) Make divider on roads which have high traffic.
    3) Make ring roads and bypass roads so that heavy duty vehicles will not enter city.
    4) Make tough traffic rules with penalty of loosing the license like western countries which will create fear of breaking rules.
    5) Make public transport easy which will reduce traffic and hence accidents like developed countries.

  7. If this was US or UK all the roads would have been done over night. Or at atleast with speed. And all the authorities incharge would have quit by now or suspended. Why don’t the MLA’s, MP’s or Minister please ask the govt. or authorities incharge to do something. God Please help and Save us.

  8. I heard that the Dead Girl was the pillion rider, don’t know why the facts are being changed, may be the girl riding the bike was nt licenced , motto may be she should nt face the case, entirely they want to blame the Dead Girl for accident, Bcoz case cannot be put on dead person, police should look into it and investigate and punish the negligent rider, or else people ll nt learn frm these deadly incidents

  9. Till today not constructed road divider.. on the road and their is heavy traffic of heavy vehicles like 10 tyres truck and one more is that their no ring road to go heavy vehicles from that road and they directly entered into city roads and the more causing accidents by the heavy vehicles only…..

  10. The concerned national high way authority officer should be held responsible for the loss of life of our children.Literally there is no value for life of our daughters .I am hearing ring road etc for the last 15 to 20 yrs.But no progress. shame on our officers.

  11. Very very sad incident. Cant imagine the state of her parents. Safety begin with us. Day by day number of vehicles are increasing but with the same size of road. Discipline to be maintained by road users. Reckless driving, using mobile phones while driving to be avoided. Avoid driving through school area in peak hours. we need make our roads children friendly.Our city roads are designed for 25 KM/hr speed only. Youngsters should be very careful while on their 2 wheeler. Remember 2 wheeler runs on balance,rash driving will cost our life. Never drive morethan 30 KM/hr in city limits. Every year we loose lakhs of young lives in road accidents. The safety lessons have to be begin with our homes. Our children should be well informed about the road safety. Its after all our life, and we need to take care. Defensive driving should be learned. At any cost loss of life to be stopped. Let the loss of this young girl, be the last one,we need to ensure no loss of life in Belgaum roads. Let the movement be triggered, let the think tanks, VIPs, Industrialists, top bureaucrats, social workers join together, and LET US STOP & SAVE OUR CHILDREN DYING ON ROADS.

  13. these actions are to be taken up too serious !
    Lives are more important than money.people driving on the roads are to b scared due to the conditions of the road and after too this accidents take place !
    The govt should repair these as soon as possible !money can repair anything but can’t buy any life !

  14. Let us join hands and work on off days to fill these pit holes in city. Please if any one is already doing this poke me , me too will join. I have read of a group of students in hubli doing this social work.

  15. How many lives still the Belgaum authorities want? Are they really serious about the lives of common people? When a Minister comes to the city the roads are repaired so that their journey becomes comfortable.That means the common people have no value.Look at the recent patches the Belgaum authorities done.The pot holes are filled with mud and on that chipping is spread.after two three days it vanishes and the pot holes are there to welcome poor citizens and thus killing the innocent citizens. Belgaum roads have become death traps.I do not know what the MPs,MLAs,Mayors and corporators are doing?How many lives they want?
