Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge

Hyderabad: Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on Tuesday sought a time-bound judicial enquiry into the Morbi bridge collapse case that claimed 135 lives on Sunday evening.

"A time-bound judicial enquiry led by a sitting SC/HC Judge is the only recourse," Kharge tweeted.

He said that accountability must be set for the loss of lives in Morbi after the suspension bridge collapsed."Accountability must be set for the loss of 135 lives in the Morbi bridge collapse. 

The conduct of the municipality, Pvt. firm and officials must be thoroughly investigated," read Kharge's tweet.

Addressing a public rally in Hyderabad on Tuesday during Bharat Jodo Yatra, Kharge attacked the TRS government in Telangana, saying it had extended support to some bills in parliament which were opposed by the opposition parties and it was now talking of ousting the BJP government at the Centre.
