Most unfortunate part of these accidents is that it is difficult to believe on the inquiries by the Railways and looks like they want to hide the real facts. The one which happened yesterday , also gives the same impression!

This is the infrastructure provided to us by Congress, ideally Modi sarkar should have tried to fix it but nah they are investing in some bullet train.

Lives of citizens of India has no value. Filthy trains, unhygenic food, robbery by train staff, almost zero safety standards, and the list is long.

that's just the number out by the press. these might even be more. the gt is not concerned about safety of the citizens but the safety of their deeply corrupted pockets. India being a develo country and so many accident is a shock not just at a national level but at an international level
