  1. It is unacceptable that such accidents continue to occur, claiming innocent lives and leaving families shattered. We cannot afford to ignore this pressing issue any longer. I urge the responsible regulatory authorities, sugar factories, and farmers associations to come together and urgently draft a comprehensive framework to address this problem.

    This framework must include strict regulations and penalties to discourage the overloading of tractors transporting sugarcane from farms to the sugar factories. We cannot allow profit or convenience to take precedence over the safety of our fellow citizens.

    Every life lost on our roads due to preventable accidents is a tragedy that could have been avoided. We owe it to all the victims and their families to take immediate and decisive action to prevent such heartbreak in the future.

    I urge you to use your platform to shed light on this critical issue and demand accountability from those responsible for ensuring the safety of our roads. Together, we can make a difference and prevent further loss of life.
