This was the reason we were able to save three passengers of the bus that met with the accident.”

He said, “Our government considers entire state as one family. When some family members are in peril, we cannot sit in peace. Due to this restlessness, I decided to go to Uttarakhand promptly and monitor the relief and rescue operations.”
