The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has accused the ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC) of being behind the Balasore train accident. The BJP has alleged that the TMC deliberately sabotaged the tracks in order to cause the accident.
The TMC has denied the allegations, calling them “baseless and politically motivated.” The TMC has said that the accident was a tragic incident and that the government is doing everything it can to help the victims.
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has taken over the probe into the accident. The NIA has said that it is looking into all possible angles, including sabotage.

The Balasore train accident has caused widespread shock and grief in India. The government has promised to take all necessary steps to prevent such accidents from happening in the future.
The BJP’s allegations against the TMC are serious and should be investigated thoroughly. If the BJP’s allegations are true, then it would be a major scandal and the TMC would be held accountable for the deaths of the victims.
The TMC’s denial of the allegations is also serious. If the TMC is found to be responsible for the accident, then it would be a major blow to the party’s credibility.
The NIA’s investigation is ongoing and it is too early to say what the findings will be. However, the accident has raised serious questions about the safety of India’s railways and the need for better safety measures.
Meanwhile, the Railway authorities have updated that the death toll has increased to 278, out of which 101 bodies are yet to be identified. The accident occurred on Friday, June 3, 2023, when three trains collided near Bahanaga Bazar Station in Balasore district, Odisha.
The trains involved were the Bengaluru-Howrah Superfast Express, the Coromandel Express, and a goods train. The accident is believed to have been caused by a signal failure.
Rescue operations are still underway, and the full extent of the damage is not yet known. The government has announced a compensation of ₹5 lahks for the families of the deceased and ₹1 lakh for the injured.
The Prime Minister has expressed his condolences to the families of the victims and has ordered a high-level probe into the accident.
The accident is a tragedy for the families of the victims and for the people of India. The government has promised to take all necessary steps to prevent such accidents from happening in the future.
