This incident has shocked the people protesting there. The protesters have then expressed shock over the statement of UP CM. After the chief minister’s quote became a big controversy, the government tried to clear the air. The government said his ire was not directed at the parents of the victims but at others raising slogans at the site.
The protesters were not satisfied and some of them squatted on the railway track. The protesters were demanding posting of railway personnel at the unmanned crossing to avoid such accidents.
