Kolkata: BJP national secretary Rahul Sinha has demanded compensation, like those
who die in plance accidents, for those who have died in the Majerhaat bridge
Rahul Sinha said that, “This mishap took place over mis-management of the bridge.
Many more bridges in Kolkata are in a same condition. Cars carry more weight that
the bridge can carry. The authorities do not keep track of these. Common people
regularly see portions of bridges tangle mid-way, but the authorities cannot see.”
Sinha also said, “The state government is full of scam. It does not take much time
for them to arrest the political opposition leaders. But they have no wish to
repair a broken bridge.”
He added, “We demand strict punishment for those who had built the bridge. It is an
unfortunate incident. We demand proper investigation as to why did it collapse. No
one was punished over the bridge collapse at Ganesh Talkies.”
According to state BJP, party workers will raise slogan on the issue by conducting
a rally in the city.
