“Collapsed state of affairs”

Dear Madam,
River bridges may collapse like a pack of cards from Bihar to Gujarat taking a fatal toll from 1 to 150! Railway bridges (in construction) can collapse in Mizoram with trains colliding with each other being regular news from Darjeeling district, West Bengal to Bahanaga Bazar, Odisha (around 300 deaths)! Railway footbridges to flyovers (in construction) can take deadly toll from Andheri to Varanasi. Roof to canopy can collapse in airports from New Delhi Jabalpur to Rajkot!
Instead of invoking unscientific talks of “God’s message to save people from Mamata Banerjee government” or demanding President’s Rule in the state whenever any mishap happens in West Bengal; the drum-beaters of ‘Viksit Bharat’ must take a hard look at the collapsed state of affairs in “double-engine” governed states and Centralised sectors like Railways and airports!
