ABra Ka Dabra
this time of year with heat and cold both at play it is natural to cause fracture of rails...what were the steps taken by engineers to avoid such a situation?
The Unknown Indian
After MH370, should all planes have been banned?
Train derailments take place all over the world. Only in India people ask for ministers'' resignation.
My condolences to the bereaved families.
SCRAP THE BULLET TRAIN OR ANY HIGH SPEED TRAIN PROJECT, that money to be used ONLY for safety imorovements of existing system. We dont need speed we need safety.
Modi and his ilk is too busy with the 500 and 1000 rupee notes ...having fun watching the miseries of the common man. He has to also plan his next US trip to see Trump soon..... Rail safety is surely not there in his agenda.....
aftr reading comments it's seems that some people are vry happy with incident because they got opportunity to criticize modi unnecessarily.
How to stop such mishaps is still a challenge?
Extremely angry and saddened...this is the 6 th railway accident this year, politicians make our railways safe plsss....I beg you.
We dont need bullet trains, we need accident free railways at first.
Mr PRABHU , you suck!! accept it!
All the rate hikes and fare hikes.... where the hell the money went .... this year was the worst on rail safety..... mr . Prabhu you must resign...
96 Families should be compensated at least Rs. 1 Crore each
Very very sad news, condolence to the bereaved family, i can feell your pain
