Is the driver supposed to stay put until the march goes past him or does the ambulance driver has the right to go past to his base waiting for a call. Doesn't these stupid Pada Yatra organizers know even that! Of course how can they ? They are crooks, killers, drug dealers and all corrupt people there!
