Calling the stampede at the Vadodara Railway Station as extremely unfortunate, Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari on Tuesday said that actor Shah Rukh Khan should pay compensation to the family of the deceased. "Shah Rukh should come forward and pay compensation to the family of the deceased. He should also promote that people should also take care of the security concerns before paying a visit to any event. This is a very unfortunate incident. Any promotions should keep in mind the security concerns associated with it. Security agencies should also make sure that prior permission is granted before conducting event like this," said Tiwari.
Commenting on the disrespectful tweet by BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya where he wrote, "The Raees that couldn't be of its own country is of no good. On another side we should support Kaabil that is patriotic.", Tiwari added, "We need to focus on other issues which are more important than Kailash Vijayvargiya's statement."

For all the ignorant, Shah Rukh's 'Raees' train journey turned bitter when a man suffered a cardiac arrest amidst the chaotic fan frenzy at the Vadodara station in Gujarat. Deeply saddened by the incident, the 'Dilwale' actor, while speaking to the media, said, "One of our colleagues was traveling with us. Her uncle came down to see her at Baroda. He suffered from a cardiac arrest. It was really unfortunate. We started the journey thinking we all will travel, spend time with each other when one of your own loses someone on a trip like this, it saddens us all. On behalf of everyone, our prayers and blessings with the whole family. She has reached there. I just spoke to her. I think the burial is in an hour or half hour," continued SRK adding, "We have some of our people with the family members there. Hopefully God will bless her soon."

However, Shah Rukh Khan and his team made sure that my mother and I reach safely to my uncle’s funeral. We got down at Ratlam and Shah Rukh’s team arranged a car for us to Vadodara to attend my uncle’s burial.”
