The Mamata Banerjee government on Tuesday made every effort to reach out to migrant labourers and pilgrims who returned to Bengal from Rajasthan. The returnees were greeted with ‘Welcome’ placards at the Dankuni Junction, while flower petals were showed on the train.
State ministers Moloy Ghatak and Tapan Dasgupta were present at Dankuni station to welcome the migrant workers and pilgrims.
“The Mamata Banerjee government is serious about the condition of migrant labourers stranded in other states. We are trying our best to bring them back. This is the first train to arrive in Bengal with such stranded people. More initiatives will be taken to ensure that others who are stuck outside state are brought back. All these passengers are being provided with food, and buses have been arranged to take them homes in various districts,” said Labour Minister Ghatak.
