No lessons learnt from Amritsar train tragedy, NSUI organises event next to tracks

Days after the Amritsar train accident which claimed as many as 60 lives, National Student Union of India, the student wing of the Congress, organised a programme on Sunday at Dhuri Line, Ludhiana, which is just a few meters away from the railway tracks.

Congress Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA) Surendra Singh Dawar was invited as the chief guest for the event, which was organised to appoint a new office bearer for the NSUI.

“I was completely unaware about the location where the event was organised. Ever since I have come here, I have been asking people to stay away from the railway line. When I got to know about the location, I asked the concerned police station to ensure proper security near the tracks,” the lawmaker said.

Congressman Dawar however, claimed that the organisers had taken permission from the concerned authorities for the event.

Meanwhile, Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader Gurdeep Singh Gosh has demanded an inquiry into the matter, stating that the authorities cannot give permission to conduct an event near the railway tracks.
