Labor Day 1 May 2020: On Labor Day, there is good news for the workers who are trapped here and there due to the lockdown. Several state governments, including Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Rajasthan, Telangana, Punjab, Kerala, have started the process of evacuating their laborers trapped in entire states.
These states have appealed to the central government to help bring these Workers by running special trains. Because there are many problems and risks in getting buses, they say that it is not possible to get or send people back safely and systematically by driving a bus. On the other hand, Uttar Pradesh has started arranging buses to bring its people from nearby states.
That’s Why States Are Insisting On Running Trains
Due to physical distance, only 20 Workers will be able to come on one bus. Thousands of coaches will have to make many trips.
Toilets and other special arrangements will have to be made on the routes to run so many buses.
It will be difficult to monitor who landed on the way, where they went, the risk of infection will increase.
These Are How A Special Train Can Make You Talk
A large number of Workers will be able to board a train. Long-distance travel will also be safe and comfortable.
No other arrangements such as halt, climb, and toilet
The train will run from a station and will stop at the destination station itself. These will control the passengers
Ten Lakhs Workers Registered in Rajasthan
About 10 lakh Workers have registered in the Rajasthan government to visit their states. For the convenience of these people, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has also warned of running long-distance trains.
UP government is preparing an action plan by talking to states
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has appealed to the people of Uttar Pradesh living in different states of the country not to travel on foot. The UP government is preparing an action plan after negotiating with the state governments for the safe return of all. Chief Secretary RK Tiwari said that at present, arrangements had made to bring everyone by bus. If the central government makes any other arrangement for a long distance, then they will use it.
