The President, Hindu Rashtra Shakti, Shri Rakeshwar Lall in a letter to the Lt. Governor inform that the Port Blair Municipal Council (PBMC) earlier used to provide Hearse (Mortuary Van) to carry deceased person to North and Middle Andaman region. But the PBMC has withdrawn this service for various reasons (COVID/Shortage staff & Vehicle etc). The decision of PBMC has left many people of North & Middle Andaman totally helpless. Those who hail from financially weak families are worst hit as to carry a deceased person from Port Blair to N & M Andaman in Private Vehicles one has to pay nearly Rs. 35,000 to Rs. 50,000 to private vehicle owners.

Considering the sufferings of people of North & Middle Andaman, the Hindu Rashtra Shakti, A & N Islands requested the Lt. Governor to issue necessary directions to PBMC to resume the service of providing Hearse to people in a minimum rate.
