Tezpur Lok Sabha MP Pallab Lochan Das, in defence of deplorable conditions of roads in the state, said good roads result in more accidents.

“Dilapidated condition of roads forces the youths to drive their vehicles slowly, which has reduced the number of road accidents in the state,” Das said.

He was addressing a public rally in Tezpur on Friday.

“Good roads automatically lead to more acceleration and this, in turn, leads to more accidents,” he added.

The National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) 2017 data, released recently after a gap of two years, revealed Assam recorded the highest number of accidental deaths in Northeast in the year.

Several media reports, time and again, have highlighted that most of the roads in Assam are pathetic and are full of crater-size potholes, which have led to numerous accidental deaths in the state.
