Train accidents are becoming more frequent. Please check for sabotage angle. RIP.
They hiked railway fair, Everyday they talk too much about improvement of services and security......
but overall result is Zero.
And the Govt.wants to run bullet trains :( First master the art of running trains at 100 kmph then get to the next step. Crawl before you can walk !!
There is no safety in the Railways at all. This govt's performance on this issue is no better than the previous if not worse.
now a days we find several trains are derailed in India. The care is not taken to prevent such accidents. Railways must safeguard the human life.
Another derailment and loss of lives. What is happening to railways and the chain of incidents of late !
Accidents - be careful and keep a watch - inquiry & report - heading for bullet trains. Are we prepared???

Keep on talking about Bullet train and Metro rail when we are not able to handle simple trains. How many innocent lives will be sacrificed due to inefficiency of the Railways. Give them a compensation of Rs 2.00 lacs to close the issue.
I always feel bumpy rail journey on this route. This stretch needs to be re-looked from engineering perspective, esp. when India Railways are planning for high-speed Rails.
I don't understand what the authorities are doing...!!!
So many train accidents are happening in very less time..
