Home Secretary Writes To All States To Take Steps To Reduce Crisis Of Migrant

Mumbai: Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla has on Tuesday written to the Chief Secretaries of all states to take steps to ‘reduce the crisis of migrant workers’, including several measures, including the operation of more specialized trains by active coordination between the states and the ministry of the railway.

Measures suggested by the Home Secretary include increasing the number of buses between states and allowing their movement across inter-state borders.

States have been asked to enter resting places with food, water, sanitation arrangements for pedestrians, besides entering their addresses and other details.

Through the letter, Bhalla said that the district authorities could be asked to request the railways to run the trains, if necessary.

The process of running labor-specific trains involves the acceptance of origin and destination states and if a train is to travel from Gujarat to West Bengal, both states must give their approval.

The Ministry of Home Affairs has run special trains after allowing for the movement of its stranded citizens, including migrants, laborers, laborers, students, and tourists amid lockdowns.
