Special train with migrant workers leaves B’luru for Odisha

Bengaluru: The first special train from Karnataka with 1,190 migrant workers left Bengaluru for Bhubaneswar in Odisha, an official said on Sunday.

“The shramik special train left Chikbanawara station in Bengaluru east at 9:26 a.m. with 1,190 migrant workers to Bhubaneswar in Odisha,” a South Western Railway (SWR) zone official told IANS here.

The Karnataka government arranged special state-run buses to transport the workers to the station in the city’s eastern suburb from relief camps across the city where they were staying over a month.

State Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa discussed with his Odisha counterpart Biju Patnaik on Saturday the transportation of the migrant labour from the eastern state who were stranded in this tech city due to lockdown since March 25 and suspension of buses and trains.
