Uttar Pradesh government accepts Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's offer to ferry migrants
The Uttar Pradesh government has agreed to Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's request to run 1,000 buses for migrants
Luckow: The Uttar Pradesh government has agreed to Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's request to run 1,000 buses for migrants. The Yogi Adityanath government has written to the Congress leader's office for details of the buses, their numbers and names of their drivers. Priyanka Gandhi had appealed to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on May 16 in a video message.
Priyanka slammed the government for not making proper arrangements to transport the migrant workers to their homes in Uttar Pradesh and said that if buses were arranged a month ago, the labourers would not have suffered.
She tweeted the appeal a day after 24 migrant workers were killed and 36 injured when a trailer rammed a stationary truck, both carrying migrants, on a highway near Auraiya in Uttar Pradesh.
"Respected chief minister, I am requesting you, this is not the time for politics. Our buses are standing at the border.
Thousands of labourers and migrants are walking towards their homes without food or water and after fighting all troubles. Let us help them. Give permission to our buses," she said.
In another tweet, she said, "Our buses are standing at the border. Thousands of nation-builders workers and migrants are walking in the sun.
Give permission Yogi Adityanath ji. Let us help our brothers and sisters."She also put out a video of buses waiting at the Uttar Pradesh border.
