Following the Kanchenjunga Express train accident, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee criticised the Railway Ministry for neglecting passenger amenities and the well-being of railway employees, including officials, engineers, technical staff, and workers. She highlighted that their old pension has been withdrawn and accused the government of focusing more on elections and manipulation rather than governance. Congress leader Pawan Khera also condemned the government, pointing out the recurring nature of such tragic incidents and accusing the ministry of not learning from past mistakes. He criticised the ministers for visiting the incident site primarily for publicity and emphasised that in the past, leaders from his party would resign after such accidents, setting a standard of accountability. #KanchanjunghaExpress #MamataBanerjee #PawanKhera #RailwayMinistry #TrainAccidents #BJP #TMC #Congress #AshwiniVaishnaw #WestBengalTrainAccident #KolkataTrainAccident #TrainAccident #TrainAccidentNews #TrainsCollide #NJPtoSealdah #TrainAccidentLatestNews #WestBengalTrainAccidentNews #WestBengalTrainAccidentUpdates ~PR.152~
