63239/ Mr Jhandwal explains that short-cuts taken by builders enables hot gases from a fire in the basement to trigger explosions upstairs in the glass-walled mall — a phenomenon called “mushrooming fire”. You would not fly an unsafe airline and you would not allow your family to do so, right? Similarly, boycott unsafe malls where lifts and stairs connect top floor to basement. In relatively safe malls, stairs connect basement to the mall from outside and lifts from basement to ground-level are separate from lifts from ground-level to higher floors. Demand rule-enforcement from your State Government. Don’t let the builder-lobby dilute the Development Control Regulations. After all, it is your life at risk. And your family’s lives.
