Instead of posing for cameras, Save trapped miners in Meghalaya: Rahul to PM Modi

Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi, Dec 26: Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday urged Prime Minister Modi to save the 15 miners trapped in an illegal coal mine in East Jaintia Hills district of Meghalaya after rescue operations were stopped.

Gandhi also asked PM Modi to shift focus his attention from “posing for cameras” to save the miners.

“15 miners have been struggling for air in a flooded coal mine for two weeks. Meanwhile, PM struts about on Bogibeel Bridge posing for cameras. His government refuses to organise high-pressure pumps for the rescue”, he tweeted.

The Congress President further said that “PM please save the miners”.

The Authorities in Meghalaya’s East Jaintia Hills district on Monday temporarily suspended operations due to lack of equipment.

A total of 15 miners have been trapped in a 370-foot-deep illegal coal mine since more than two weeks.
