"Those responsible have still not been identified...": Tejashwi Yadav on Odisha train accident
Patna: Bihar Deputy Chief Minister and Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Tejashwi Yadav on Sunday slammed the Centre for a negligent attitude stating that those responsible for the tragic train accident in Odisha's Balasore have still not been identified.
While talking to the media, Tejashwi Yadav said, "It's a big accident. This has happened due to negligence. Railways claim that safety is their priority but even after such a major accident, responsibility has not been fixed yet. Action should be taken against those responsible." "The visuals were horrific. The Railways always said that safety is their priority. Such a big accident happened and still, those responsible have not been identified. This is not the time for politics. I hope that an investigation team has been formed. If not, then it should be done immediately," he added.
