When there is an accident involving the railways claims the lives of several school children in Telangana, guess what was going most on Social Media?…… it was not Masaipet mishap in which more than 25 school children were dead due to collision of Nanded Passenger with the school bus, but Sania Mirza as the Brand Ambassador for Telangana and the Roti feeding by Shiv Sena MP to a so-called fasting Muslim in holy Ramzan month in New Delhi.
And, surprisingly, the so-called Brand Ambassador of Telangana nominated by KCR just 4 days ago, did not even spell out anything on the train accident happened in Telangana, nor did she gave any condolence message to the bereaved family members of the school kids killed in the train accident.
And unfortunately, none have dare to tweet or the will to sympathize or highlight that these school children were killed in holy Ramzam month or even the incident in which a 6 year girl child in Bangalore was raped by a Muslim School Teacher in a school at Bangalore in the same holy Ramzam month.
As usual, Akbaruddin Owaisi, Member of Parliament who hails from Telangana went to manhandle the Sena MPs in Parliament in protest against the feeding of roti in the mouth of a muslim who served the meals, but did not utter even a single word on the school kids killed in train accident in Telangana.
Social Media also hailed INR 1.00 Crore Cash Award to Telangana Brand Ambassador Sania Mirza and many tweets made remarks that the amount was much lesser than what she deserve!
More than 25 schoolchildren died when a train rammed into a school bus at an unmanned railway crossing at Masaipet in Medak district on Thursday. But the news does not even find a mention on the social media accounts of the Railways. On Facebook, apart from a lowdown on bio-toilets, information about two trains has also been put up. “The Rajdhani Express is a series of fast passenger train services in India operated by the Indian railways, connecting New Delhi with other important destinations. The Rajdhanis are among the fastest trains in India along with Shatabdi Express and Duronto Express. The Rajdhani coaches are made at the Railway Coach Factory in Kapurthala and Chennai,” reads one Facebook post.
Even on railway minister D V Sadananda Gowday’s twitter account, there was information about bio-toilets only on Thursday. Interestingly, when the railways hopped on to social media platforms for the first time on July 7, it stated: “The Ministry of Railways is now on social media. We look forward to interacting with netizens, using this vibrant medium.” So much for ‘social’ connect!
