INDIA: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is on a three-day tour to Gujarat and Rajasthan, is currently paying floral tributes to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel on his birth anniversary in Gujarat’s Kevadia.

Modi extended his grief and condolences to all those who lost their lives in the Morbi cable suspension bridge mishap, which happened yesterday.

The PM, while addressing people in the Statue of Unity, said, “I am in Ekta Nagar, but my mind is with the victims of Morbi. Rarely in my life have I experienced such pain. On one hand, there is a pain-riddled heart; on the other hand, there is the path to duty.”

He further added, “I express my condolences to the families of those who lost their lives in the accident. In this hour of grief, the government is with the bereaved families in every way.”

PM Narendra Modi urged everyone to stay united during this tragic time. He urged everyone to take inspiration from Sardar Patel, who carried on his duty despite facing challenges from all quarters.

More than 142 people lost their lives in the bridge collapse, leaving behind many critically injured. The tragic incident happened during the celebration of Chhath Puja, located 300 km from Ahmedabad.

The alleged British-era bridge was opened to the public on October 26, after the completion of a six-month-long renovation. The incident was so terrifying that it was later called “urgent mobilization.” The situation called for instant relief operations. However, women’s children and older people lost their lives by drowning in the river.

However, a proper probe has been initiated in the case but the local municipal body’s chief, Sandipsinh Zala, in his statement, said that the person responsible for the renovation had not taken a safety certificate before opening it for everyone.
