SRK must pay compensation to family of deceased: Manoj Tiwari
New Delhi [India], Jan. 24 (ANI): Calling the stampede at the Vadodara Railway Station as extremely unfortunate, Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari on Tuesday said that actor Shah Rukh Khan should pay compensation to the family of the deceased.
"Shah Rukh should come forward and pay compensation to the family of the deceased. He should also promote that people should also take care of the security concerns before paying a visit to any event. This is a very unfortunate incident," Tiwari said.
"Any promotions should keep in mind the security concerns associated with it. Security agencies should also make sure that prior permission is granted before conducting event like this," he added.
Commenting on the tweet by BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya, Tiwari said that former's statement has always been misinterpreted by the opposition.
"We need to focus on other issues which are more important than Kailash Vijayvargiya's statement," he added.
Earlier on social media, Vijayvargiya took a jibe at 'Raees' and supported Hrithik Roshan's 'Kaabil'.
He tweeted, "The Raees that couldn't be of its own country is of no good. On another side we should support Kaabil that is patriotic."
Shah Rukh's 'Raees' train journey turned a bitter when a man died in Gujarat's Vadodara due to the chaos at the railway station, where fans gathered to get a glimpse of their favourite star.
Deeply saddened by the incident, the 'Dilwale' actor, while speaking to the media, said, "One of our colleagues was traveling with us. Her uncle came down to see her at Baroda. He suffered from a cardiac arrest. It was really unfortunate."
"We started the journey thinking we all will travel, spend time with each other when one of your own loses someone one trip like this, it saddens us all. On behalf of everyone, our prayers and blessings with the whole family. She has reached there. I just spoke to her. I think the burial is in an hour or half hour," continued SRK.
Adding, "We have some of our people with the family members there. Hopefully God will bless her soon." (ANI)
