Expressing solidarity with Beas victims.
About 5,000 people participated in the peace walk conducted by the alumni association and students of VNR Vignana Jyothi Institute of Engineering and Technology on Sunday evening. The march, which started from Necklace Road to Jal Vihar, was held in remembrance of the lives that were lost in the Beas tragedy.
“This was indeed one of the biggest and longest walk that was held at Necklace Road,” shared Lalit Jain, founder of Wanderers: Bulleteers of Hyderabad.
The biker community lent its support to the walk which had over 100 bikers from Wanderers.
“The accident was indeed a human error and all we have to offer is our condolence. The loss is unfathomable,” shared Lalit.
The organisers noted that the walk was only to offer condolences and pray for the lives of those who are still missing and not to condemn anyone.
"We have no intentions of protesting against the government or the people behind this incident," said Pavan Kumar, one of the hosts of the event and a VNR student himself.
The event saw participation of the survivors and parents who lost their children and their relatives.
"A post walk discussion about the action to be taken by the government and to take up the issue to the PMO, was discussed in the event," said Sri Vishnu, who hosted the walk along with Pavan Kumar.
Usually, to take out a rally or a march, organisers have to take permission from the GHMC and pay a fee of around Rs 10,000. But for this event, the GHMC had exempted this fee.
