A Big Step By Govt For Students And Laborers Trapped In The Lockdown

Railways said,

“As per the guideline issued by the ministry of home affairs, it has been decided to run “Shramik Special” trains from “Labour Day” today, to move migrant workers, pilgrims, tourists, students and other persons stranded at different places due to lockdown.”

The decision has taken after states urged the Centre to run transports for students and migrant workers. Earlier, while announcing the special trains, the Centre only allowed the movement by buses.

On the request of State governments, these trains will be run from point to point for receiving and sending such stranded workers and students.

The state governments and railways will hire senior officials as nodal officers for effective operations and coordination of these “Shramik Specials”.

The workers and students will be screened before sending them to their homes, and only those would be allowed to travel who found asymptomatic.
