Maintenance of rails and compartments are to be learnt from INDIAN RAILWAYS. How not to do them? Rails are to be maintained properly and should be replaced regularly. If not such accidents will occur. Even the very old compartments or racks are too old to cause this. Once I was waiting at ERODE station to catch my train. I saw some men push two goods carriages and suddenly they derailed and fell down.

the new rail minister must be held responsible and asked to quit for his failure to upgrade safety measures

He should bravely face media, order thorough investigation to find root cause & take preventive measure to avoid such thing happen again. Quiting in a coward act.
