Regulating gatherings to prevent tragedies UPSC NOTE


  • The stampede at a religious congregation at Hathras in western Uttar Pradesh, claiming over 120 lives, is only the latest in a series of such tragedies in the country

  • There are reports that there were over 2.5 lakh participants at the venue, which could accommodate no more than 80,000

  • The responses, particularly from the field-level public health system, have exposed how ill-prepared the Uttar Pradesh administration is. 

  • Inadequate number of ambulances and medical staff have become the common features of such tragedies. 

  • What has made it worse is the preacher and his aides reportedly leaving the site even as panic-stricken people were dying

  • The most tragic aspect, as seen in the past, is that it was all avoidable had there been proactive steps taken by a vigilant administration. 

  • Unfortunately, the authorities in many States do not appear to have learnt lessons or made use of the availability of better technology and communication

  • Apart from stringent action against those responsible, the U.P. administration should ensure a just compensation package, the cost of which has to be borne by the organisers. 

  • The officials concerned should ensure that the organisers have the wherewithal to handle large gatherings of any size. 

  • The local authorities and organisers should also conduct a drill ahead of such events

  • What is more important is that the political executive, the bureaucracy and organisers of any public event should be conscious of the fact that the loss of a life is a tragedy for the person’s family. 

  • The arrangements for mass functions should be governed by this fact.
