UP government accepts Priyanka Gandhi’s proposal to run 1,000 buses for migrants

NEW DELHI: The Uttar Pradesh government has accepted the offer of Congress to run buses for the migrant workers.
Awanish Awasthi, Uttar Pradesh additional chief secretary (Home), on Monday wrote a letter to Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra accepting her proposal to deploy 1,000 buses for the migrants.
The UP government has requested the Congress leader to immediately provide details of the buses and drivers, so that they can be used to help the migrants.
Priyanka had on Saturday written a letter to the Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath requesting permission to deploy 1000 buses to help the migrants walking to their homes.
She had said that the entire cost of travel through the buses from Ghazipur and Noida borders will be borne by the Congress.
The letter came on a day 24 labourers were killed and several injured after the truck they were traveling in, collided with another truck in Auraiya district in Uttar Pradesh.
“Lakhs of workers from Uttar Pradesh are returning to different parts of the country. Despite government declarations, adequate arrangements have not been made to take them safely to their homes,” Vadra had said in her letter.

“Fulfilling its duty towards these vulnerable migrant workers, Congress wants to run 500 buses each from Ghazipur border Ghaziabad and Noida. Indian National Congress party will bear the entire cost. We want your permission to run 1000 buses to help the migrant workers while following all the norms to combat Covid-19 pandemic,” she added.
The letter was handed over to the Uttar Pradesh chief minister Office by a delegation led by state Congress chief Ajay Singh Lallu.
