‘Narcissistic propaganda minister’: Opposition fumes over Odisha train accident, some ‘ready to give suggestions’
The railways have said that ‘Kavach’ - the automatic train protection system was not available on the route where the accident occurred on Friday evening.
Opposition leaders have been left fuming after a horrific three train crash killed more than 260 people and injured nearly 1000 others. While some emphasied the need to prioritise the rescue operations others have called for Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw's resignation. Former Railway Ministers including RJD's Lalu Prasad Yadav and West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee have also weighed in, flagging the lack of ‘Kavach’ anti-collision system on the trains.
