Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader and former railways minister Khawaja Saad Rafique on Monday expressed deep sorrow and grief over the loss of precious lives in the Ghotki train accident and demanded the federal government to order a judicial inquiry into it.
Addressing a press conference, the PML-N leader criticized the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government over today’s train accident and demanded the government to hold accountable those responsible for the tragic train accident in Sindh’s Ghotki district.
“Judicial probe should be ordered to find out the real culprits behind the train accident near Daharki railway station in Ghotki which led to the killing of over 50 people and 70 others sustained injuries,” he added.
The PML-N leader further said that today’s accident was occurred due to a lack of track maintenance. Khawaja Saad Rafique said that the federal government issued no funds for the repair of railway tracks.
“Tracks are 30 years older and government paying no attention towards the railway ministry,” he said, adding that more train accidents being occurred in the PTI government due to their non-serious attitude towards the ministry.
