sonia- 3Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Thursday expressed shock and anguish over the flyover collapse in Kolkata, which killed 14 people.

“Extending her condolences to the family members of the deceased, Smt. Gandhi hoped that the injured are being suitably treated,” tweeted INC India, the official Twitter handle of the Indian National Congress.

“She has instructed the PCC (Pradesh Congress Committee) and Congress frontal organizations to assist in relief efforts,” the party said in another tweet.
