Several states aren't giving permission for 'shramik special' trains which pains me: Railways Minister

While speaking to ANI in the national capital on May 14 amid COVID-19 outbreak, the Union Railways Minister Piyush Goyal spoke on 'shramik special' trains.

He said, "It pains me that several states such as West Bengal, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand are not giving enough permission for 'shramik special' trains to enter their states." "West Bengal first gave permission for only two trains, but after Union Home Minister Amit Shah wrote to state Chief Minister then announcement was made that eight more trains will be allowed.

But until today (May 14) afternoon, only 5 out of those 8 trains were allowed by the WB government," Piyush Goyal added.

"I once again appeal to West Bengal Government, instead of allowing 105 trains in 30 days, please give permission for 105 trains every day.

We will send back all the migrant labourers of WB who want to go back home," the Railways Minister further stated.
