Congress demands Prabhu’s resignation

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

 

New Delhi: The Congress on Wednesday demanded the resignation of Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu over the train accidents.

“Suresh Prabhu should take moral responsibility and resign from the post. In the past three years, 28 such incidents have taken place, in which more than 300 people have died and more than 800 were injured.

“If he has the slightest of morality, then after today’s (Wednesday) accident, he should immediately give resignation. This is the worst kind of tokenism asking the Railway Board Chairman or any other official to step aside,” said Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari.

Railway Minister Prabhu on Wednesday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and offered to resign “taking full responsibility” for train accidents and said Modi had asked him to “wait”.

At least 74 persons were injured when 10 coaches of the Kaifiyat Express derailed in Auraiya district of Uttar Pradesh on Wednesday morning, police said.
