BanglaHunt Desk: News of relief for migrant workers in Uttar Pradesh. The events of Aurangabad still shine in the hearts of the people. This time the government is keeping an eye on this incident so that it does not happen again. Former Maharashtra chief minister and BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis has ordered workers to return home on government-provided trains instead of walking home.
16 migrant workers were the victims of a tragic accident in Aurangabad
Migrant workers were returning home along the railway line in the Karmad area of Aurangabad around 5 am on Friday. They decided to return home by the railway line due to the lockdown caused by the coroner (COVID-19). Exhausted on the way, they fell asleep on the railway line due to the closure of the railway service. But luck does not help them. Sixteen workers were crushed to death by the wheel of a wagon.
Discussed with Union Minister Shri Piyush Goyalji.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
