Exclusive: Mamata Banerjee On Kolkata Bridge Collapse

Speaking over the collpase of the flyover in Kolkata in which 18 people were killed, WB CM blames the previous Left Front government, which started construction of the flyover when it was in power. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said,”The tender was passed in 2009 by the erstwhile Left Front government and was given to Hyderabad-based IVRCL Construction,” adding that the company had not provided the government details of the construction plan despite several reminders. “Stringent action will be taken against officials of the construction company and others involved,” the chief minister, who cut short her election campaign in West Midnapore district and rushed back to the city, said. At least 18 people were killed, over 60 others injured and many trapped as portion of an under-construction two km flyover collapsed on a congested road intersection here, crushing people, vehicles and hawkers.
