Mumbai Bridge Collapse: BJP neta Sanju Verma blaming pedestrians is not surprising at all
Yet another tragedy and yet another politician creating controversy with insensitive and illogical comments to defend the government for its negligence.
This time it's Sanju Verma of the Bharatiya Janata Party who proclaimed on a news talk-show on Thursday that the foot over-bridge collapse in Mumbai that killed at least six people was a 'natural disaster'.
Within hours of the tragic accident that took place at 7.30 pm leaving at least 40 people injured, the political and administrative blame-game begun. Mumbai's Shiv Sena ruled civic body Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and the Railways ministry blamed each other for the failure while Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said that whoever cleared the bridge as safe for use during its audit must be held responsible for the failure.
