Flyover Collapse Not An Act Of God, It Is An Act Of Fraud: PM


Kolkata: Blasting West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on the Posta flyover collapse, PM Narendra Modi on Thursday said that the flyover collapse is not an act of govt but an act of fraud perpetrated by the Trinamool government.

PM Modi addressing a poll rally at Jalpaiguri district’s Madarihat said, “The TMC government is virtually submerged in corruption.”

PM also trained gun on Mamata and blamed her of politicizing the collapse by blaming Left Front, while her priority should have been rescue and relief. Mamata Banerjee had earlier blamed the collapse on the Left Front as the project was their brain child.

The Vivekananda flyover collapse on March 31 had left 27 people dead and many injured. IVRCL, the company building constructing the flyover had termed the collapse as an act of god and tried to evade responsibility.

Mamata Banerjee led Trinamool government came to the scanner after reports circulated that the nephew of Trinamool leader Smita Bakshi was handed sub-contract by IVRCL to construct the section of flyover.
