A horrible fire broke out in a factory situated in Udyog Nagar near Peeragarhi today which spread all around the factory. After the incident of fire, strong blasts occurred in the building resulting in the collapse of that structure. During firefighting 18 persons including 14 firemen were injured. One of the firemen also died while fighting the fire. Just after getting the information, Delhi Pradesh President Shri Manoj Tiwari reached at the place of incident, Peeragarhi. Pradesh Media Co-Incharge Shri Neelkant Bakshi was also present with the Pradesh President Shri Manoj Tiwari at the place of incident.
Talking to the media persons after meeting the firemen, Pradesh President Shri Manoj Tiwari said that I am very much sad due to the incident of fire continuously happening in Delhi. I am also very grieved due to the death of a brave fireman who lost his life in this incident. I pray to God for peace to the departed soul and strength to the family members to tolerate it. BJP stands with the family members of deceased employee in this hour of grief.
Shri Tiwari also said that I tried to know about the condition of the people affected by it at the place of this horrible incident of Peeragarhi. The fire fighters had to struggle very much to control the fire. Due to the collapse of the building, the firemen were trapped but they saved lives of 15 people. But one of them lost his life. I salute the bravery, sacrifice and sense of duty of the firemen. Delhi Government is not taking steps to prevent such incidents which are increasing day by day. Delhi Government should take immediate measures for security from fire.
Shri Tiwari further said that this incident of fire is not a natural incident and hence our first duty should be to find out the reasons and take preventing measures. But happening of such incidents again and again indicate that there is lack of precaution. Such incident on the second of the New Year has shaken me. The death of a fireman is irreparable loss to the family. However many lives have been saved due to the bravery of the firemen.
