Migrant Workers brought back home!

Monday, 4th May 2020

1200 + migrant workers who were left stranded in Telengana due to more than a month of nationwide lockdown returned home this Friday night. A 24 coached special train; the first of its kinds, chugged into Ranchi’s Haita station on Friday late night bringing those migrant workers back home from Telangana. It was nearly 11.15 pm when the train arrived at Haita. The train had departed from Telengana’s Lingampally at around 4. 50 AM on Friday morning.  On reaching Haita station these workers were conveyed to their respective home districts in special sanitized buses and were welcomed back home by police & administrative officials. After preliminary medical checkup, the migrant workers were transported to their respective villages in special, well sanitized buses provided by the Jharkhand state government. According to reports, food parcels were meted out to the workers prior to the bus journey.


A senior officer of the Ranchi railway branch informed the PTI on 2nd May; i.e. Saturday that the special train returned to Telengana by 2.10 am. The return journey of the train took place after the train was thoroughly sanitized and coaches were sealed to stop any sort of unauthorized entry.


Meanwhile, preparations have been made for receiving two bring-back-home special trains conveying students from the Kota city of Rajasthan. Those two trains are likely to arrive by evening in Dhanbad and Ranchi respectively.


Regarding the special train that’s scheduled to arrive at Haita from Rajasthan’s Kota city, the Ranchi Division officer said that similar drill is to be observed in line with the specified Covid-19 protocols. The official informed that 281 migrant workers have returned from Telangana this morning. They were greeted at the covid-19 assistance centre set up at GLA College. 15 buses were arranged to convey these workers to their respective districts.


According to reports, 443 laborers arrived at Garhwa and underwent medical tests while 67 workers reached Latehar. The official also reported that workers who have returned home from Telangana by that special train reached their homes in the various districts like Dumka, Bokaro, Ramgarh, Deoghar, Simdega, Sahibganj and many other districts. On this opportunity given to return home, a happy migrant worker by the name of Rajendra Ram belonging to Palamau expressed his happiness and thanked CM Hemant Soren.


The CM, meanwhile, suggested that all the migrant workers need to be soldiers in this battle against the coronavirus and safeguard themselves, their family members and villages too.


In this context, it is worthwhile to quote CM Soren…"We are happy to welcome them back. The process of bringing them started the moment we received relaxation orders (from the Centre),"
