Uddhav Thackeray, the president of Shiv Sena (UBT), expressed his condolences over the tragic bus accident in Buldhana, Maharashtra. He criticized the Eknath Shinde-led government for its alleged inaction in preventing accidents on the Samruddhi Expressway, where the incident took place. Thackeray emphasized that the Buldhana accident should serve as a wake-up call for the government, highlighting that over 300 lives have been lost on the expressway since its inauguration last year.

During the early hours of Saturday, a bus carrying 33 passengers caught fire on the Samruddhi Expressway near Sindkhedraja in Buldhana. Tragically, 25 passengers were charred to death, while the remaining eight survived, according to the police.

The Samruddhi Expressway, officially known as the ‘Hindu Hrudaysamrat Balasaheb Thackeray Maharashtra Samruddhi Mahamarg,’ is a 520-kilometer Phase-1 stretch of the Nagpur-Mumbai Samruddhi Mahamarg. This ambitious project, spearheaded by Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in December of the previous year.

Thackeray described the Buldhana accident as both unfortunate and shocking. He emphasized that the Samruddhi Expressway has witnessed a staggering number of accidents, resulting in more than 300 fatalities within the past year alone. Expressing his disappointment with the government’s lack of action in curbing these incidents, Thackeray expressed hope that the Buldhana tragedy would finally prompt the authorities to address the issue.

In summary, Uddhav Thackeray, the Shiv Sena (UBT) president, expressed his sorrow over the bus tragedy in Buldhana and criticized the Eknath Shinde-led government for their perceived failure to prevent accidents on the Samruddhi Expressway. Thackeray urged the government to take action, highlighting the alarming death toll of over 300 people on the expressway since its opening. The Buldhana incident serves as a grim reminder of the urgent need for measures to enhance safety on the Samruddhi Expressway.
