Letter Published in The National UAE on 7Oct 14India must revamp the ailing railways
Despite India’s progress, its railways remain stuck in the past (Train collision in northern India kills 12, October 2).

Every time an accident occurs, it’s the driver or those operating the signals that take the blame. This time it was not different. The report says the accident happened because of the negligence of the driver and his assistant. The question is, why do accidents take place so often?

Instead of the blame game, the government should try to revamp the creaking railway infrastructure. The train is the most popular mode of transport in India. So it’s the responsibility of the government to make it safe and secure for the public.
