Meanwhile, Citizens have strongly protested against unavailability of helmet having price of Rs 500.
They said that the district administration’s claim to provide helmets at low rates was just a drama.

The district administration managed a truckload of helmets at Rs 500 each, but it could not be made available.
The district administration representative said that the helmets worth Rs 500 were sold immediately.
