New Delhi: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Monday slammed the Uttar Pradesh government for not making proper arrangements to transport the migrant workers to their homes in Uttar Pradesh and said that if buses were arranged a month ago, the labourers would not have suffered.

"A large number of migrant labourers are waiting at Ramlila Maidan in Ghaziabad to go home. There is no system from the Uttar Pradesh government. If a proper procedure to transport them had been established a month ago, the labourers would not have suffered so much," she tweeted (translated from Hindi).

She claimed that the UP government did not give permission to transport migrant workers to their respective homes.

"Yesterday we arranged 1000 buses...talked to UP government. When we brought buses to the border, the UP government started doing politics and did not even give permission. The government is not ready to help people in distress. And if someone offers to help them it refuses," she said.

The Congress leader had on Sunday requested Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to allow the buses arranged by the Congress party, to enter the state in order to transport migrant labourers back to their homes. (ANI)
