There is chaos after the explosion in the firecracker factory in Harda.
There has been a big explosion in a firecracker factory in Harda, Madhya Pradesh, in which the death of 8 people has been confirmed so far, while the news of 50-60 people being seriously injured has also come to light. The explosion in the firecracker factory was so severe that the fire spread to more than 60 houses built nearby. Taking action in this matter, the administration has so far evacuated more than 100 houses. Let us tell you that this is not the first accident, such accidents have happened here before also but the authorities did not pay any attention here.
According to the information, a similar accident had taken place two years ago in this firecracker factory of Hadra in which 3 innocent people had lost their lives. After this accident, people also complained to the District Collector 4-5 times about the firecracker factory here. But, District Collector Rishi Garg did not hold any hearing and ignored this entire matter. Now an accident has happened here again in which innocent lives have been lost.
Had there been a hearing, the accident would have been averted.
It is being told that this firecracker factory belongs to Raju Aggarwal and he has been operating the firecracker factory here for the last 10 years. Raju Aggarwal is accused of making more firecrackers than the capacity during Diwali. The firecrackers being made here are also supplied to many places. However, during the accident, some people have also said that explosive material was kept illegally in the nearby houses, due to which the accident took an even more gruesome form.
People nearby have said that accidents have happened at this place 3-4 times in the last 10 years, yet the administration did not take any concrete action here and kept lax. Even after the complaint, the attitude of the administration remained completely indifferent on this issue.
