Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday turned the heat on the BJP-led Central government and sought the resignation of Railway minister Ashwini Vaishnaw for the tragic triple train accident that took place in Odisha’s Balasore on Friday. 288 people have died in the accident and over 1000 sustained injuries in one of India’s worst train disasters in over two decades.
Gandhi slammed the Narendra Modi-led government in his latest tweet and asked the Prime Minister to seek the resignation of Vaishnav.
“No accountability even after 270+ deaths! The Modi government cannot run away from taking responsibility for such a painful accident.
“The Prime Minister should immediately seek the resignation of the Railway Minister!” Gandhi tweeted in Hindi.
