NEW DELHI: The
Uttar Pradesh government
has accepted the offer of Congress leader
to run buses for the
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 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.
