Whenever need we have to support emergency vechicle in any festival, dharna etc.
These type of steps can save lives.
And this is how we do it in india.

I believe it should be news in India, not everyone but at least few will understand that they are supposed to give a way to an ambulance.— Swapnil Desai (@Swapnil18898454) September 13, 2019
