Congress leader and Punjab Cabinet minister Navjot Singh Sidhu's wife Navjot Kaur Sidhu was the chief guest at the Ravana effigy burning event where a train ran over 50 people.
According to an eyewitness, Sidhu's wife was the chief guest at this particular event and she continued to give the speech as people were struck down by the train.
"The Congress had organised Dussehra celebrations here without permission. Navjot Singh Sidhu's wife was the chief guest at the celebrations and she continued to give a speech as people were struck down by the train," he told ANI.
Locals also claimed that they had informed the railways about the Dussehra celebrations, but the train continued to speed.
Navjot Kaur Sidhu, who later was seen in the hospital looking after injured persons, said that she just left the accident site when the incident happened.
"The effigy of Ravan was burnt and I had just left the site when the incident happened. Priority is to get the injured treated. Dussehra celebrations are held there every year,"
She further said, "People who are doing politics over this incident should be ashamed of themselves."
