New Delhi, May 17: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MP Sanjay Singh on Sunday said that if the Centre wants they can send migrant labourers back to their homes in two days but the process is just being delayed. Earlier today, Singh reached Uttar Pradesh-Ghazipur border in order to meet the migrants and distribute food among them.
Speaking to ANI, Singh said: "Right now, migrant labourers are badly disturbed. They want to return to their homes. The Centre should take responsibility to operate train services. They are just delaying it. The more it is being delayed, more accidents are taking place every day." Coronavirus Outbreak: AAP MP Sanjay Singh Goes For Self Quarantine As He Met TMC's Derek O'Brien.
"24 people died in Auraiya, 16 people died in Aurangabad, six people died in Muzaffarnagar, five people died in Madhya Pradesh's Sagar. Why are these migrants left on roads to die? If the Centre wants, we can send these migrants back to their homes in two days," he added.
Singh continued saying that with the coordination between States and Central government, these migrants should be allowed to go back to their native places.
