Congress Ready To Pay For Rail Travel Expenses Of Every Migrant Worker:- Indian National Congress today announced that it is ready to bear the cost of the rail expenses of the migrant workers and labourers who are stranded in several states due to the coronavirus lockdown. Congress President Sonia Gandhi made this statement today saying that it is the decision of the party and Congress would love to make a humble contribution to help the migrant workers reach their homes. "On the one hand, the Railways is charging ticket fares from labourers stranded in other states, while on the other hand, the Railway Ministry is donating Rs 151 crore to the PM-Cares Fund. Just resolve this puzzle" informed Rahul Gandhi in a tweet.
