The Lok Satta Party today expressed dismay over nearly 45 passengers being burnt alive in a Volvo bus accident at Palem in Kothakot mandal of Mahbubnagar district in the early hours of Wednesday.

In a media statement, State Lok Satta Party President Katari Srinivasa Rao pointed out that Volvo buses have been experiencing short-circuit problems because of defective insulation and wiring in body building and installation of gadgets like TVs and audio sets beyond the engine capacity.

Mr. Srinivasa Rao, who has worked on problems in the transport sector for more than a decade, demanded that the Government enforce all safety measures including speed regulation to prevent accidents. Unfortunately, the administration has come to a standstill in the State for the last four years.

He sought a thorough inquiry into the ghastly accident and conveyed his condolences to the bereaved families.
