UP Government Vs Priyanka Gandhi Over The Stranded Migrants:- The other day, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra offered 1000 buses to take all the migrant workers home. In response to this, the government of Uttar Pradesh says that the Congress party says are completely unacceptable. After the letter penned by Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, a top government official asked the opposition party to hand over all the buses along with the driving licenses of the drivers and the fitness certificates in Uttar Pradesh's Lucknow by 10 AM. Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's private secretary Sandeep Singh says that it is a political move by the government and he questioned why is it necessary to hand over the buses in Lucknow instead of sending the migrant workers back home.
आदरणीय मुख्यमंत्री जी, मैं आपसे निवेदन कर रही हूँ, ये राजनीति का वक्त नहीं है। हमारी बसें बॉर्डर पर खड़ी हैं। हजारों श्रमिक, प्रवासी भाई बहन बिना खाये पिये, पैदल दुनिया भर की मुसीबतों को उठाते हुए अपने घरों की ओर चल रहे हैं। हमें इनकी मदद करने दीजिए। हमारी बसों को परमीशन दीजिए। pic.twitter.com/K2ldjDaSRd— Priyanka Gandhi Vadra (@priyankagandhi) May 17, 2020
Earlier before this, the government of Uttar Pradesh agreed the request of Priyanka Gandhi Vadra who sent a video message to run 1000 buses for the migrants who are left stranded. The Congress also arranged a number of buses from Rajasthan in which the party is leading in the state and is in power. Priyanka Gandhi Vadra posted the video after 26 migrant workers died in an accident in the state. The UP Government announced that no migrant worker will be allowed to walk or take the trucks. Hundreds of workers are left in a waiting mode at the borders of the state. UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath asked the details of the migrants and he claimed that the government is arranging 12,000 buses for the stranded people.
