WB govt didn't cooperate to run special trains for migrant workers: Piyush Goyal

The Union Railways Minister, Piyush Goyal on May 21 said that the West Bengal Government not actively cooperated with Railways Ministry to let migrant workers reached their home via special trains amid the coronavirus uncertainty.

"Some states did not cooperate with us to run special trains for sending back migrant workers to their homes.

I think there are around 40 lakh people who want to return to West Bengal but only 27 special trains have entered the state so far," Piyush Goyal said.
