Shivraj Singh Chouhan writes to 8 Chief Ministers for info on migrant workers passing through MPMay 20, 2020
Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has written a letter to the Chief Ministers of eight states to provide information of labourers passing through Madhya Pradesh from other states on time. The Madhya Pradesh government is dropping labourers going to other states through Madhya Pradesh safely at the borders. Buses have been arranged in a large number of border districts for this task and transit camps have been set up on the routes.
In the letter, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has written to the Chief Ministers of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Karnataka, Telangana, Jharkhand, West Bengal and Chhattisgarh that the practical difficulty in the movement of labourers is that Madhya Pradesh does not get to know how many labourers from other states are coming to the border of Madhya Pradesh and at what time. Chief Minister said in the letter that free arrangements for food, vehicles and medicines are made by the Madhya Pradesh government. Due to lack of prior information about the movement of the labourers, many times the system gets disturbed when a large number of labourers come and create law and order situation due to panic and the labourers also have to face difficulties. Shri Chouhan has requested the Chief Ministers of other states to inform in advance to the Madhya Pradesh government so that our government can make all necessary arrangements on time.
