New Delhi, Dec 26 (IBNS): Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the issue of rescuing trapped 15 miners in Meghalaya and said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader is busy posing in front of the cameras while inaugurating the Bogibeel Bridge on Tuesday. 

"15 miners have been struggling for air in a flooded coal mine for two weeks. Meanwhile, PM struts about on Bogibeel Bridge posing for cameras. His government refuses to organise high pressure pumps for the rescue. PM please save the miners," Gandhi tweeted.

The miners are trapped inside a flooded illegal coal mine in Meghalaya’s East Jaintia Hills district. 

According to the reports, the coal mine was located at Ksan village near the Lytein river under Saipung police station.

The labourers remained trapped inside the rat-hole coal mine for past few days after water overflowed inside it.

Meanwhile, Modi inaugurated Bogibeel bridge, which is now India's longest road-and-railway bridge, here on Tuesday.

The 4.94 km Bogibeel bridge over the Brahmaputra will cut travel time between Itanagar and Dibrugarh by 19 hours, says Northwest Frontier Railway.

The bridge with two broad gauge lines and a three-lane road over it, will also help security forces manning India's border with China.
