Zee Media Bureau/Tarun Khanna
Bhopal: As the political blame game begins on Madhya Pradesh Ratangarh temple stampede, Union minister Jyotiraditya Scindia on Monday said that administration failed to learn any lesson after 2006 incident.
“There has been total administrative failure. When tractors aren`t allowed how come there were tractors. They were supposed to be 3 kms away then why were they parked on both the sides?,” asked Scindia.
While questioning the reliability of the inquiry, he further added, “What Magisterial inquiry will take place, that same which was initiated in 2006?”
The stampede happened due to rumours yesterday that a river bridge the devotees were crossing was about to collapse.
The state government had ordered a judicial inquiry into the mishap which as the same incident had occurred at the same site in 2006.
“Women had to use their Saris as ropes to save lives, what is the administration doing. It is possible that death toll in this tragedy could be between 200-300” Scindia said.
