Following on the principle of wait and watch helicopter companies, who have been running annoyed because government has tightened their noose and forced them to follow strict tariff rule, shown their supermacy by denying service unless and until government clears their due. They put this demand when 62 people were desperately seeking medical aid and SDRF personnel were ready to extend their support. Although state cabinet minister Harak Singh Rawat has condemned this and said that we will have to see why they denied service at a time when state was desperate to get their service to rescue the accident victim. He has also said that he would ask the government to cancel their license.
Ironically, on Sunday when a bus fallen into gorge and victim were wailing for help then SDRF team were put on alert mode to ferry them nearby accident spot. they were waiting for helipad but helicopter companies did not provide their helicopter to the SDRF team. Later ACS Omprakash spoken to the companies director then they sent their helicopter for rescue service.
According to heli service companies their old dues are yet to clear by the government so how can they provide service on credit? After all they have to pay for everything including salary, fuel etc.
