    On Saturday, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee visited the site of a tragic train accident in Odisha’s Balasore district. The accident killed 261 people and left over 900 others injured. Banerjee demanded a proper investigation to determine the exact cause of the accident.

    Banerjee spoke with Union Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw and other officials about the lack of coordination in the Railways Department. She expressed concern that the anti-collision system may not have been functioning properly, which could have contributed to the accident.
