NEW DELHI: Considering the “unprecedented” number of rail accidents in the country during the last one year, the government cannot keep quiet about the state of affairs in the Railways, the Communist Party of India (Marxist) said on Monday.

In a statement here, the Polit Bureau expressed shock and sorrow at the collision between two trains at the Sainthia station in West Bengal, leading to the death of at least 60 persons.

Maintenance of equipment and safety measures were being neglected in the Railways. One lakh safety-related jobs remained vacant, ” the statement said.
