A baby barely few months old died after the ambulance ferrying the baby and her family got stuck in major traffic chaos caused due to a cycle rally led by Haryana Congress president Ashok Tanwar. 

The incident has brought to fore the apathy with which politicians in the Haryana Congress allegedly failed to make way for an ambulance that was carrying a critically ill child. Every minute was crucial, but that purportedly had no bearing on the party workers who had clogged the road in Sonipat near.      

Within an hour after the baby was brought to a super speciality hospital in Rohtak in Haryana, the baby died due to ‘delay’ in medical assistance caused. Had the baby reached the hospital in time, she would have perhaps lived. Tanwar says the traffic jam was due to the ongoing construction work in the area and that his partymen did try to make way for the ambulance. 

According to eyewitnesses, the ambulance was stuck in traffic for over 20-minutes which eventually cost dear. The driver of the ambulance kept honking the horn and blowing the blue beacon in a desperate attempt to find a way out of the Congress rally, but to no avail. Good Samaritans got out of their vehicles and attempted to maneuver the traffic so that the ambulance could move fast to the hospital. But the Congress rally had clogged the entire road. The ambulance that had the baby along with her parents finally moved out of the chaos after the cycle rally led by Tanwar moved in another direction, sources said. 

The critically ailing baby was rushed from a private hospital on doctors advice in an ambulance. The ruling BJP has slammed the Congress apathy. BJP leader Jawahar Yadav said even through rallies are held by all political parties, utmost caution needs to be observed in case of ambulances and other emergency vehicles, which was not the case during the Congress rally.
