The Bihar government has ordered an inquiry into the collapse of this bridge. The state government has said that strict action will be taken against whoever is found guilty of this incident.
Patna: The bridge being built on the river Ganges in Bhagalpur, Bihar collapsed on Sunday after being filled with playing cards. In 2014, CM Nitish Kumar had laid the foundation stone of this bridge. A video of the collapse of the bridge is going viral on social media. It is seen in this video that more than 30 slabs of a pillar of the bridge are falling into the river Ganga. Please inform that the responsibility of building this bridge was given to a private company.
Significantly, last year on April 30, 2022, the super structure between pier numbers 405 and 6 of this bridge collapsed in a gust of wind. Even at that time serious questions were raised on the construction work of this bridge.
This bridge was of four lane
According to the information being received, this bridge being built between Sultanganj to Khagaria was of four lane. The super structure of this bridge under construction fell into the river. According to the information received so far, there is no information about any casualty in this incident. Seeing the part of the bridge falling into the river, there was chaos among the people standing at some distance from the spot.
Bihar government ordered an inquiry
The Bihar government has ordered an inquiry into the collapse of the bridge being built on the river Ganga in Bhagalpur. In a statement issued by the Bihar government, it has been said that during the investigation, the reasons for the collapse of the bridge will be ascertained and strict action will be taken against whoever is found guilty.
Talking to the media on the issue of the collapse of the bridge being built on the river Ganga in Bhagalpur, RJD leader and Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar Tejashwi Yadav has said that this has not happened for the first time. Earlier in 2022 also its upper part had fallen due to a storm. At that time, even while being in the opposition, we had raised the question. Along with this, he said that the investigation was entrusted to IIT Roorkee by the government, in which many things were told, on the basis of which some constructions were also demolished. We had apprehensions regarding the design of the bridge.
BJP has attacked CM Nitish Kumar for the collapse of the bridge. The BJP issued a statement saying that the way the bridge being built on the Ganga river in Bhagalpur, Bihar has fallen victim to corruption. Due to the collapse of this bridge, the evidence of corruption of CM Nitish Kumar and his government has come to the fore. This gives rise to many questions. This bridge was being built for many years and was a dream project of Nitish Kumar, which was started in 2014. In this, the cost increased continuously.
Last year also this bridge had collapsed due to the storm. This time also this bridge collapsed without any vehicle moving. It is clear from this that what kind of shoddy work has been done due to corruption, theft and commission. This type of construction work is being done at many places in Bihar. We are demanding an independent and impartial inquiry into the matter. Nitish Kumar ji should take the responsibility of this accident.
