earlier number of derailment was more... and since last few years, number of collisions is more... this is really serious.
derailment may happen due to many different reasons but for collisions, it is more of human mistakes.

Whats wrong in this 40 km stretch between rangapani mayanaguri that two big fatal railway accidents happened in last two years.HCPV somehow have saved many lives but still death toll is 15+.Railway should look towards the safety of passengers and took this matter seriously looks like signalling problem they should improve the signalling system and prioritise LHB conversion they are running summer special with LHB coaches but old train like kanchenjunga still in ICF if LHB it would have ran no death or very less could be (excluding LP/ALPs of goods train).

@Mridul has only motive to only criticize the LP.

Why so much targetting? Listen I accept that some LPs doesn't focus, might sleep, or watching IPL.

But if they are going asleep, there
is a very high chance that they get overburdened, or get tired. Quality matters more then quantity. And LPs always work in day, night even on holidays, festivals as well. They have to face many problems,(which might not be explained easily).

And always remember, IR has to show someone responsible so, they have to suspend some employee , whether they are liable or not in many cases.

Piyush Goyal was RM when, there was Covid,(talking about 2020) a natural advantage. Otherwise the condition was same, percentage gone from 0.6 to 0.5 only this is improved, otherwise Don't forget the Amritsar train disaster and when Hundry Express was rammed at Kacheguda.

And RM Ashwini Vaishnav name should be changed VB Minister. Only focus VB and AB trains.

It's unfair to criticize Ashwini Vaishnaw for this one accident, but in general, he has been below par. All fancy stuff but overall deterioration of even basic services. He isn't the right person for IR even not considering this accident. Also should be seen whether LP was overworked or the signal was obscured by something rather than just blame the dead LP, which is the easiest getaway here.

These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
