Description

Indian Railways announced operation of more Shramik special trains for evacuating stranded migrant workers, labourers, pilgrims, and students from various parts of the country from May 4. The decision came after the Union Ministry of Home Affairs issued guidelines for the movement of these groups of people on May 1, 2020... a decision that gave some glimmer of hope to the thousands of stranded migrant labourers across the country after the lockdown was announced on 23 March 2020.
