UP govt accepts Priyanka’s proposal to ferry migrants

NEW DELHI, MAY 18 (AGENCIES) | Publish Date: 5/18/2020 12:09:11 PM IST

The Uttar Pradesh government on Monday accepted the proposal of Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra to deploy 1000 buses for migrants. In a letter to Vadra, UP Additional Chief Secretary (Home) said the government has accepted her proposal and asked her to provide the details of 1000 buses and drivers without delay.

This comes hours after the Congress leader tweeted a video of thousands of migrants assembled at Ram Leela Maidan in Ghaziabad wanting to return home. “A crowd of migrant workers have assembled at the Ram Leela Maidan in Ghaziabad. The UP government cannot manage anything. If they would have made proper arrangements before a month, the migrants would not have had to face the hardship. Yesterday we proposed to deploy 1000 buses and brought them at the UP border. But we were not allowed. Neither the government is helping the migrants nor is it allowing others to help them,” tweeted Vadra.

However, UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said if along with the list of the 1,000 buses, if a list of the migrant labourers is also provided, “we will definitely permit them”.

“We have already told them that the list should be provided to us, so that we are assured that all the migrants are from Uttar Pradesh and we can safely take them to their respective destinations. We would be happy to do so, but in the last three days, we have not got any list of the buses,” he said.
