Virbhadra plays Politics over Mandi Beas accident

Only 4 bodies of 24 Hydrabad students, who was swept by water release from the Larki hydro project, rescue operation is still going in. Meanwhile, Virbhadra claimed the alarm was working and officials at the dam had given a warning before releasing the water. Asked about the allegation of locals that there was no warning, he replied, “The warning systems are in place and the people in question here may be having a different ideology. Check political affiliation of people who claim students were not alerted.” Terming the incident unfortunate, Singh said, “Students had come with teachers. I think the teachers should have taken precaution that the students did not go to the riverbed. But anyway, I do not want to blame anybody.” ~ Read in Indian Express
