Workers were stranded for a long time due to the lockdown implemented in the ongoing fight against the Coronavirus epidemic. Now when he got permission to go home after about a month, the Central Government decided to recover all the expenses of the rail fare from the labourers. Political rhetoric has intensified on this and now Congress President Sonia Gandhi has taken a big decision about it. The Congress party will bear the cost of railway tickets of all the needy labourers.
Congress President Sonia Gandhi has decided that every unit of the State Congress Committee will bear the expenses of the train journey ticket for the return of the labourers and workers and will take necessary steps.
Sonia Gandhi said in a statement that while we can bring back the stranded Indians abroad without any expense, in a program in Gujarat, we can spend Rs 100 crore from the state exchequer if the Ministry of Railways Rs 151 crore in the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund. If you can give, then why cannot you afford to hire workers in difficult times..?
