Corruption, criminal negligence behind shoddy infra: Kharge on T1 roof crash


Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on Friday slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government over the roof collapse incident at Terminal 1 of the Delhi airport, saying that corruption and criminal negligence is responsible for the collapse of shoddy infrastructure.

On microblogging site X, Kharge said, “Our heartfelt condolences to the victims of the Delhi airport tragedy. They bore the brunt of a corrupt, inept and selfish government.

“Corruption and criminal negligence is responsible for the collapse of shoddy infrastructure, falling like a deck of cards, in the past 10 years of Modi Govt.’

Kharge also listed a number of key infrastructure projects highly advertised by the Modi government that did not last as impeccably as the ruling dispensation would have wanted.

He said, “Delhi Airport (T1) roof collapse, Jabalpur airport roof collapse, Abysmal condition of Ayodhya’s new roads, Ram Mandir leakage, cracks in Mumbai Trans Harbour Link road, 13 new bridges falling down in Bihar in 2023 & 2024, Pragati Maidan Tunnel submerging, Morbi bridge collapse tragedy in Gujarat, … are some stark instances that expose the tall claims by Modi ji and the BJP of creating “World Class Infrastructure!.’

The senior Congress leader said, “On March 10, when Modi ji inaugurated the Delhi Airport T1, he called himself, “Doosri mitti ka insaan…”

He further said, “All this false bravado and rhetoric was only reserved for quickly indulging in ribbon-cutting ceremonies before Elections!.”

As per a statement by the Aviation Minister to the media, the Delhi airport accident left one dead and several injured, besides temporarily suspending operations till 2 pm.
