Railway Minister Piyush Goyal has blamed the states for this situation amid the heated politics of migrant workers going on foot to the lockdown. He also said that he is ready to run 300 trains every day, but is not getting permission from the states. Due to this, the workers have to suffer this pain. During this time, he strongly criticized the attitude of states like Bengal, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan and said that only a few trains have been allowed to run from these states.
In his statement, Piyush Goyal made it clear that so far, one thousand labor special trains have been approved, out of which 932 trains have been run. Of the total labor special trains run, 75 percent trains have been run for Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. Only two trains have run for Bengal. After the intervention of the Home Ministry, five more trains have been allowed to run.
Till June 15, that is, 105 trains have been reported to run in the next 30 days. Despite this, around 40 lakh people of Bengal alone live outside the country, who want to return to their homes during this crisis, but due to this attitude of the Bengal government, all of them are suffering. The 105 trains which have been said to be run are also just information. No details have been given. Goyal said that similar situation is also there with Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan. Where the least trains have run till now.
