Former Railway Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Dinesh Trivedi on Saturday expressed anguish over the Odisha triple train accident that claimed the lives of 261 people and said nobody should do politics over dead bodies. “I think the priority has to be to save as many lives as possible…This is not the time for politics. Nobody can do politics over dead bodies,” the Former Railway Minister said. “This is a massive tragedy. Our heart really goes out to the bereaved families,” he further added.

Earlier, Congress leader Prithviraj Chavan expressed concern over Odisha’s triple train tragedy and said this is a very unfortunate accident, the inquiry must be public and a high-level committee must disclose its findings. “At present, the central government is keeping things confidential, so I want the findings of the matter must be kept in front of everyone,” he said.

Demanding the resignation of Railway Minister Ashiwini Vaishnaw he said, “We also demand the Resignation of the Railway Minister, he should offer voluntarily and follow the tradition of Lal Bahadur Shastri.” Around 650 injured passengers have been taken to the Hospitals of Gopalpur, Khantapara, Balasore, Bhadrak and Soro, the South Eastern Railway said.
