Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed blamed passengers for the train incident in which at least 74 people were killed near Rahim Yar khan. However, people all across Pakistan are not happy with the minister’s remarks and blame the entity for its criminal negligence.

On Thursday morning, a gas cylinder of the train, Tezgam that was on its way from Karachi to Rawalpindi exploded, killing hundreds of passengers. Three carriages of the train were destroyed due to fire, two economy class and one business class carriage.

“It isn’t PR’s fault and passengers are to be blamed for it,” the minister said while speaking to journalists after the tragedy left the nation shaken.

“It is unfortunate that passengers take cylinders with them. They don’t fear the law,” he said, adding that several people jumped to their deaths from the burning train.

Statements of railways minter Sheikh Rasheed were not very well received by the people where he promised to have an inquiry about how passengers were able to carry cylinders along with them on a train.

Nation accuses govt

“Be the change you talk about,” journalist Adeel Raja tweeted while urging Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan to sack the minister.

Moeed Pirzada, senior journalist and analyst tweeted that there was no firefighting equipment on the train and the staff was not well trained to tackle such critical situations.

A short circuit in one of the bogies’ fans caused fire, an eyewitness.

“The train kept moving even when it was on fire and there were no emergency facilities available inside the train,” the witness said as he blamed PR authorities for not taking complaints of the passengers seriously.
