Instead of criticizing Rahul Gandhi, Centre should talk with opposition for helping migrant workers: Ashok Gehlot

After Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman criticized Rahul Gandhi for meeting migrant workers, Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Ashok Gehlot condemned the statement and said that instead of it, Centre should have talked to opposition for helping migrant workers.

Gehlot said, "I condemn how Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman criticized Rahul Gandhi for meeting migrant workers.

It was needless.

Instead of criticizing Rahul Gandhi, Centre should have held talks with opposition on what help they need for arranging facilities for migrant workers.

It'll take 6-8 months if migrants travel by train, we should arrange vehicles for them."

Balrampur Rape

Amid outrage over the Hathras rape case, another similar story has now emerged from neighbouring Balrampur. A Dalit girl was allegedly gangraped and later died on the way to the hospital. Both the accused in the Balrampur incident have been arrested. The mother of the victim said that her daughter was abducted and raped when she had gone for admission in a college. ‘They broke her legs and back, she could not stand or talk, all she said was my stomach is burning,’ said a distraught mother of the victim. She also added that they had no enmity with the accused or anyone else in the locality. The police though said that the post mortem report does not confirm these injuries. Meanwhile, the opposition has lashed out at the Yogi government and slammed it for failing to protect women in the state.

No district of West Bengal included in PMGKRA as state did not share data: Sitharaman

Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on September 19 said that West Bengal government did not share data of returning migrant labourers with the Centre and no district of the state could be included as a beneficiary under the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Rozgar Abhiyan (PMGKRA). She was answering a query by Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury in Lok Sabha. "Prime Minister Narendra Modi initiated PMGKRA for migrant labourers who came back to their villages during the coronavirus-induced lockdown. This scheme was introduced on June 20 this year and will be effective for 125 days. The minister said 116 districts spread across six states - Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan are benefiting from this scheme. The selection of the districts was made on the basis of the return of at least 25,000 migrant labourers to the concerned districts by May 30. After the launch of PMGKRA, there were demands from Tripura and Chhattisgarh to include more districts but it was not entertained. In the case of West Bengal, there was no data shared by the state government then how could the districts of the state be included in the scheme," said Sitharaman.
