Medinipur (West Bengal) [India], July 16 (ANI): All India Trinamool Congress (TMC) on Monday expressed concern over the tent collapse incident that took place during Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Kisan Kalyan rally in Medinipur.
The party stated that the organisers of the rally must take responsibility for the same.
"We are deeply concerned about those who were injured at the rally. We pray for their early recovery. All assistance and help will be provided to the injured. The organisers of this rally must take responsibility for this lapse," read a press statement from TMC
Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Modi visited the injured in the hospital and enquired about the condition of those who were hurt after a portion of a tent collapsed on them at his Kisan Kalyan rally in Medinipur.
In the middle of his speech, Prime Minister Modi saw the portion of the tent collapsing and instantly instructed the Special Protection Group (SPG) personnel standing behind him to attend to any injured.
Not only the local party unit, even Prime Minister Modi's personal staff ranging from his doctor to SPG personnel instantly rushed to help the people.
"Straight after the rally in Paschim Medinipur, PM Narendra Modi went to the local hospital and enquired about the condition of those who have been injured," read a tweet from the Prime Minister's Office.
The prime focus of the rally was the Centre's recent decision to increase the Minimum Support Price (MSP) of Kharif crops.
The Central Government on July 4 approved the proposal to hike MSP by 50 per cent for 14 Kharif crops for the year 2018-19. (ANI)
