Dr. JP expresses shock over TN Express mishap


Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan today expressed shock and dismay over the Tamil Nadu Express fire which killed and injured a large number of passengers.

In a media statement, Dr. JP demanded a thorough, high-level inquiry into the major incident and expressed his profound condolences to the victims’ families.

Dr. JP wanted the railways to initiate all measures to guarantee safety of passengers using the latest technology, instead of dismissing mistakes in preventing accidents as routine. The railways should follow a policy of zero tolerance towards accidents. It has taken no measures even to prevent transport of gas cylinders, kerosene and other explosives, he added.
