Md Salim of the CPI-M said his party demands that a high-level probe be ordered and alleged that the rescue work was not going on properly.
"We also demand that the National Disaster Response Force be brought in for the rescue operation," Salim told a news agency after visiting the site. State Congress president Adhir Chowdhury alleged that the collapse of the bridge was a clear case of corruption.
"We demand a probe into the entire construction process. Immediate probe should be ordered. This is a clear case of corruption. The collapse proves the poor state of governance in the state," Chowdhury said.
At least eight persons were killed and scores trapped under the debris when a portion of an under-construction flyover collapsed today in the busy northern part of the city.
