“Congress will bear the expenses of train travel of migrant laborers” says Sonia Gandhi

New Delhi: Congress President Sonia Gandhi has announced that the Congress party will bear the cost of the train journey to return the trapped laborers across the country. Sonia Gandhi hit out at the Modi government for charging railway tickets from migrant laborers.

Sonia Gandhi said that if the government can bring back the stranded citizens abroad for free then why can’t it show the same goodwill for free rail travel of migrant laborers?

On the statement of Sonia Gandhi, the Congress has tweeted that the Indian National Congress has decided that every unit of the State Congress Committee will bear the ticket expenses for the journey of every needy laborer and worker back home and take necessary steps in this regard. Sonia Gandhi said that despite repeated demands from the Congress, the Central Government and the Railway Ministry kept avoiding sending migrants home for free.

Sonia Gandhi said that it is a matter of great sorrow that in this hour of railway crisis, the central government is charging train ticket fee from the migrants. Politics has become hot after migrant workers collected ticket money. Opposition party leaders are targeting the Modi government over the issue.
