The Gurugram district administration on Friday sent back about 3,800 labourers belonging to Uttar Pradesh and northeastern States via a labour special train and Haryana Roadways bus in the wake of the Covid-19 global epidemic.

The train left for Dimapur and Guwahati in Northeast state with 1,400 labours. While 2,400 workers were dispatched onboard 80 buses of the Haryana Roadways to Moradabad, Aligarh, Bareilly and Etawah in Uttar Pradesh.

As per the directions of Deputy Commissioner Amit Khatri, the health of all the workers were examined under the supervision of sub-divisional magistrate (SDM) Chinar Chahal from Gurugram district and thereafter they were dispatched to their home districts by roadways buses.

“Around 3,800 migrant citizens have been sent in train and buses from the Gurugram district in 80 buses. They buses were dispatched from Tau Devi Lal Stadium, Government Women’s College Sector-14, Manesar Sector-8, Gaushala Manesar and Siddravali village,” Chahal said.

According to the schedules prescribed by the district administration, thermal scanning of all those workers and their families before boarding the bus ensured that none of them was corona infected. Face masks, food and water bottles were also provided to them.

Chahal appealed to the migrant workers to show patience and restraint. “Arrangements have been made to send the migrants who have been registered with Saral portal. The workers are sending to their home districts in an orderly manner. No migrant citizen should leave in hurry on foot or cycle towards their home districts,” the SDM said.

“We appealed to every migrant labour to cooperate with the district administration and said that they will be sent to the destination free of cost through trains and buses under the prescribed schedule,” he added.

“The migrant workers are being sent continuously through special labour train and buses from the Gurugram district, but if any migrant citizens want to go home by their own vehicle too, then Gurugram district administration is ready to cooperate with it,” Chahal said.
