    It is strange to note that even after loss two precious humans lives, no case was registered against erring firm which failed to ensure protection for workers. Who is accountable for this? Let us hope that at least Saffronized party Government in UP led by Yogiji shall give adequate compensation to these laborer's family. Convey our heartfelt condolences to bereaved family members.
