Thekkady Boat Tragedy: The un answered questions..

Yesterday kerala witnessed one of the worst  boat tragedies in its history, after KTDC’s new double-decker boat ‘Jalakanyaka’ overturned at Manakkavala in Thekkady, claiming the lives of more than 43 people.

Some un answered questions regarding the tragedy.

1.Why enough life jackets  were not provided to the travellers of the boat.?(It has to be remembered that the boat was owned by K.T.D.C. itself,which markets Kerala as God's own country..)

2.Why no proper security instructions were given to the travellers before the journey?

3..Why only two guides were employed in the boat with a  holding capacity of  75 persons.?

4..And why do people like Cheriyan Philip still try to make  a political mileage through this incident?!
