Khan sympathised with relatives of four kids of a family died due to train crash.

“Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique should resign after the tragic Lodhran train accident,” Imran Khan demanded.

He asserted that the train accident was caused by negligence on part of the management and this is not the first time that a terrible accident had occurred.
