Rahul Gandhi visits Kolkata flyover crash site, meets victims

rahul-kolkathaCongress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday visited the city’s Posta area where an under-construction flyover collapse killed 27 people and later met the injured in a hospital.

Flanked by state party president Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury and former union minister Deepa Dasmunshi, Gandhi was at the crash site for ten minutes and interacted with the officials engaged in rescue work.

He then went to the Medical College and Hospital, and interacted with some of the injured admitted there.

“It’s a tragedy and one must give support to whatever he can. The injured people need support and I am here to give whatever support I can. I am not here to talk politics,” said Gandhi to media persons after his hospital visit.

Later in the day, Gandhi will be addressing rallies at Kulti and Durgapur in Burdwan district and Bankura.
