New Delhi, May 8 : BJP president Jagat Prakash Nadda on Friday expressed grief over the tragic accident in Maharashtra's Aurangabad where 16 migrant labourers were mowed down by a freight train. 'I am pained beyond words to learn about the tragic train accident in Aurangabad, Maharashtra. I have asked our karyakartas to join the rescue operation and provide full support to the administration along with adherence to all health protocols.' He expressed his deepest condolences with those who have lost their loved ones and prayed for early recovery of those injured.
The perilous journey of 16 migrant labourers met a devastating end earlier in the day when a freight train plying between Badnapur and Karmad, about 25 km from here, crushed them all to death while they were sleeping on the railway tracks. The 20 migrant labourers, hailing from Sadol and Umaria districts of Madhya Pradesh, were working for a steel company at Chandanzira in Jalna. Of the total, 14 people slept on the railway track while two people lay very close to it. (UNI)
