New Delhi, May 17 (SocialNews.XYZ) Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi, in a video appeal, urged the Yogi Adityanath government in UP, to allow the buses with migrant labourers stranded on the state's borders to enter.
Around 400 buses, with migrant workers abroad, have reached Bahaj Goverdhan border.
Priyanka Gandhi had arranged 500 buses to bring back migrants from Rajasthan's Alwar and Bharatpur but Congress says that the vehicles did not get permission from the UP government to enter the state.
On Saturday, Priyanka Gandhi had written to the Chief Minister to give permission to ply 1,000 buses for the migrants after the horrendous accident in Auriyya where 24 people lost their lives.
Priyanka Gandhi, who is also in charge of party affairs in eastern Uttar Pradesh, said that the Congress will bear the cost of these chartered buses at a time when the migrants are finding it tough to return homes safely.
"Lakhs of workers are trying to get back to their homes while walking from various parts of the country and there are not enough arrangements made for them. We wish to operate 500 buses each from Ghazipur and Noida borders," she said in the letter to Adityanath.
The "nation-builders cannot be left to fend for themselves in such times", she said in the letter.
