New Delhi, June 6 (UNI) The Congress on Tuesday took a dig at the BJP-led government at the Centre over the recent train accident in Odisha’s Balasore district, accusing it of shifting the focus away from its “failures”.

Addressing a press conference, Congress spokesperson Supriya Shrinate said, “Instead of finding out what caused this grave accident. The government is now spinning conspiracy theories and shifting the focus away from safety.”

The railway minister should take moral responsibility and resign from the post “Once again the Modi government is shifting the focus away from its own ‘failures’. The government has refused to prioritise safety of citizens,” she said.

Shrinate added, “The reality is, accidents are happening because safety of passengers is not the priority of this government.”

Earlier, Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and expressed concern about the safety of passengers.

He had said all the “empty” safety claims of the railway minister have now been exposed, in the wake of a train accident in Odisha’s Balasore district.

In his letter, Kharge wrote, “The devastating train accident in Balasore, Odisha, one of the worst in Indian history, has shocked the nation.The train accident has been an ‘eye opener’ for all of us. All the ’empty’ safety claims of the railway minister (Ashwini Vaishnaw)

have now been exposed.”
