The Congress Thursday held the BJP-led Central and state governments responsible for the Mumbai bridge collapse, which has killed at least five people, saying they are "criminally culpable" of inaction and also demanded the ouster of Railway Minister Piyush Goyal.
"I am saddened on hearing the news of the Mumbai foot overbridge collapse. I express my heartfelt condolences to the families of those who have died. I pray that injured get relief soon," he said in a Facebook post in Hindi.
He offered condolences to the families of the victims and expressed hope that the administration will take swift action and provide urgent medical help to the injured.
Five people were killed and 29 injured after a major portion of a foot overbridge near a train station in south Mumbai collapsed Thursday evening, officials said.
The bridge which connected the area near the Times of India building with the iconic CSMT station was commonly known as 'Kasab bridge' as the 26/11 Mumbai attack terrorist passed through it during the terror strike.
All the injured have been rushed to nearby hospitals, a disaster management cell official said.
