The #CSTBridge which collapsed today killed 5 and injured 30 is just a few yard away from #BMC head office. It is at one of the most prime locations of main city Mumbai and over one of the busiest Roads. The footover bridge was built in 1980s connecting the local CST terminal with Anjuma-I Islam side of the MRA Road.
ElphinstoneBridge, #AndheriBridge and now #CSTBridge. How many more lives should common Mumbaikers offer to make things work properly?
Enough is enough. No more blame games please. The central railway ministey and the BMC authority are equally responsible and they must be booked under criminal negligence and murder. Officials who audited and gave clearance about this bridge must be arrested out right under murder.
Once we fix the responsibility and inflect genuine punishment against the apathetic office bearers whose negligence caused loses to valuable human lives, the reduction in such Himaliyan negligence in public services will automatically reduce.
We offer our deepest condolences to the families of deceased souls and pray for quick recovery of injured ones.
