Today (09:54)   Amritsar train tragedy: Driver of locomotive writes letter explaining his stand

Amritsar: The driver of the intercity train that mowed down 59 people to death and injured 57 others on Friday evening put out an emotional letter explaining his stand on the gruesome tragedy that rocked the state of Punjab and the country on Dussehra last week.
Amid a political slugfest over the involvement of Navjot Kaur Sidhu, wife of Punjab minister Navjot Singh Sidhu and chief guest at the Dussehra celebrations at the spot of the incident at Joda Phatak, and the demands for enquiry into the incident by the Bharatiya Janata Party and Shiromani Akali Dal, the statement comes as a poignant development to understand the stand of the person behind the wheels of the ill-fated locomotive.
saw a crowd around the track…I immediately applied the emergency brakes while continuously blowing the horn. Still, some people came under it. The train was about to stop when people started pelting stones, which is why I started the train for passengers’ safety,” the DMU train’s driver Arvind Kumar said.

Navjot Singh Sidhu on Sunday launched an attack at the Indian Railways, questioning its functioning, and asked how a ‘clean chit’ was given to the loco-pilot of the train, which mowed down at least 59 people watching a Dussehra event in Amritsar, in “one day”.
“What sort of commission did you set up that you gave a clean chit to him (loco-pilot) in one day. Either the driver was permanent or he was engaged for one day. Why do not you say?” Sidhu said.
The statement from Sidhu came a day after Union Minister of State for Railways Manoj Sinha said there was no negligence on part of the railways. The railways said in its defence that it was not informed by the organisers or the local administration that a Dussehra event was being organised near the railway tracks. It said on Saturday that the tragedy was a case of trespassing and ruled out any probe.
“You get an FIR registered when you stop (the train) for a cow or even if someone is found sitting on a track… And you ran over people and yet did not stop,” he claimed.
Opposition parties have sought action against those who allowed the event near the railway tracks. The Shiromani Akali Dal has demanded Sidhu’s dismissal from Punjab’s Congress government, alleging his wife presided over an “unauthorised” event. The state government has ordered a magisterial probe into the circumstances that led to the accident.

But Railways have to be firm this time on not agreeing on giving even a penny of compensation by taking the issue of trespassers seriously .... RM Piyush Goyal has to support the point & stay firm on the same.... Cz if he agrees to their demands, it would be a big win for politicians & politics and they ll take Railways for granted.... Politics really shouldn't emerge victorious here

Gadag - Hotgi Doubling updates.
Bhima River bridge
approach and after the bridge, the land levelling work is done.
The pillars of the bridge have been constructed.
Girders launching - the toughest part - is yet to start.
From the size it looks like it will be a double line bridge.
Some work is going on at one end, but since this section is not for this year not much pace.
There are other works related to stations going on in this section, which I will post in subsequent blogs.
