दोस्तों, मुझे समाचार चैनलों के माध्यम से प्रारंभिक जानकारी में दो लोगों की मौत की सूचना मिली थी। यह राहत की बात है कि इस हादसे में कोई भी नागरिक हताहत नहीं हुआ है। मैं ईश्वर से घायलों को शीघ्र स्वस्थ करने की प्रार्थना करता हूँ। https://t.co/ocyXWI5e65— Shivraj Singh Chouhan (@ChouhanShivraj) February 13, 2020
