Mumbai: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday slammed Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Aditynath following his recent plan according to which no state can take manpower from Uttar Pradesh without his government’s permission.
Speaking about this Gandhi said that this is “absolutely absurd” and added that these people are not his personal property.
“I think it’s unfortunate. I think people are Indians first and then they belong to their states, and the decision whether someone goes to work from Uttar Pradesh to the rest of the country is not the Chief Minister. It is the people of India and the people of Uttar Pradesh. If a citizen of Uttar Pradesh wants to go and fulfill his dreams in Maharashtra or in Delhi or in Karnataka or anywhere else he should have the right to do so,” Rahul said on Tuesday.
“It is very unfortunate that the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh views India in this way. These people are not their personal property. They are not the personal property of Uttar Pradesh.
“These people are Indian citizens and they have the right to decide what they want to do and they have the right to live the life they want to live. It is our job to support them to fulfill their dreams. It is not our business to say that you belong to me, you cannot work in Maharashtra. This is an absolutely absurd situation, ”he said.
Adityanath had said on Monday that the state government would provide social security and insurance to the laborers and no state could take manpower from Uttar Pradesh without the permission of its government.
On Sunday, Adityanath had ordered the formation of a ‘Migration Commission’ for the purpose of providing the workers, who have returned to the state during the lockdown phase, with employment suited to their skills.
