Following the worst train accident in six years that saw the death of 143 passengers, the Railways has promised “strictest possible action“ against those found guilty .
While an inquiry by the commissioner of railway safety has already been ordered, the state-run transporter announced a thorough investigation with the aid of latest technical and forensic analysis into Sunday's train accident. Making a statement in the Lok Sabha amid noisy protests by the opposition over demonetisation, railway minister Suresh Prabhu said the exer cise to replace old coaches lacking crash worthy features would be expedited. “I had in formed this House during the previous rail budget that such coaches will be progressively replaced and phased out. This will be expedited,“ he said. “There
will be a separate, comprehensive investigation and forensic analysis to look into all possible angles. Strictest possible action would be taken against the guilty,“ he said. Giving details of the Railways' relief and rescue operation, the minister said old technology coaches in operation lacked crashworthy characteristics of modern coaches. Prabhu also gave details of the rescue operation.He along with Railway Board chairman visited the spot and interacted with victims.
TOI had highlighted on Sunday that despite recommendation of the Kakodkar panel on railway safety in 2012, the transporter had failed to switch over to modern Linke Hoffman Busch (LHB) coaches from the old Integral Coach Factory (ICF) designed ones.

Who will be taking MORAL responsibility for accident and death of 145 innocent passengers?
HE should resign or will be sacked.

Resigning or sacking is not the option brother... There is a need of serious changes in which we plan, maintain and operate... i still feel we go by conventional methods... Engineers and experts need to get the free charge in terms of decision making, executing and taking action else these issue will prevail forever...

Friend, The concept of moral responsibility is an emotional one and not scientific one. Resignation on moral grounds is just making oneself a escape goat, and as a result the root cause of accident shall never get eliminated. The new RM shall not be able to stop the accidents.
The person actually responsible for accident need to be penalised, so that there is a fear against committing mistakes and there is no place for carelessness in working.
Head of RM should roll for an accident if his role as RM is
not good and the accident is a direct consequence of his bad/wrong decision. In this case it is not so. RM has given maximum delegation of powers to IR officials like never before.
Right now RM is very disciplined and hard working but his team mates does not appear to be so. RM need to prove how firmly he can deal with the objective of bringing the much needed changes in work culture of IR.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
