“Third train derailment today (Thursday). Safety in shambles. Modi Sarkar should be renamed as ‘Derailment Sarkar’,” tweeted Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala.
Three train derailments rocked the Railways within a span of 12 hours on Thursday — three days after new Railway Minister Piyush Goyal took charge, leading him to order an immediate review of safety standards.
Earlier after the second incident, Surjewala had said: “Second derailment today. Daily train accidents expose grave threat to passanger safety as Railway Ministry remains in deep slumber.”
He also said: “Another train accident caused by derailment in Uttar Pradesh post reshuffling of cards, when will we have passanger safety measures in place?”
