Mamta Banerjee announced to give job
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee announced government jobs to the family members of those who lost their lives in the train accident in Odisha’s Balasore. Banerjee said that the families of those who lost their limbs in the gruesome accident would also be given government jobs. He said that his government would also provide cash assistance to those who were aboard the Coromandel Express and are currently undergoing mental and physical trauma. Banerjee will visit Bhubaneswar and Cuttack on Tuesday to meet the injured passengers undergoing treatment in different hospitals.
He said that at present 206 injured passengers from West Bengal have been admitted to various hospitals in Odisha. “The condition of 33 passengers admitted in hospitals in Cuttack is critical,” he added. Banerjee said some ministers and senior officials from Bengal would accompany her. She will distribute ex-gratia checks and appointment letters to the families of the victims on Wednesday. The West Bengal Chief Minister said she did not want to get into any kind of politics over the accident and was ready to extend all possible help to the injured passengers and their families. Sources said Banerjee today canceled her four-day visit to Darjeeling at the last moment to oversee the treatment and rehabilitation of passengers from the state who were injured in the train accident.
