Workers are not taking the name of the disputes between the center and the state about special trains. On Sunday, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and Railway Minister Piyush Goyal targeted each other.
Uddhav Thackeray alleged that despite demands, the Railways was not providing adequate number of trains to the state. Addressing the people of the state, Thackeray said that he had demanded 80 migrant special trains daily for the state for the sake of transporting the migrants home, but he was getting only 40 trains. He also said that the state has paid Rs 85 crore for these trains.
To this, Goyal taunted the Chief Minister of Maharashtra and said that it is expected that the trains do not have to go back empty after coming to the station as before. I would like to assure you that the number of trains you have, and will be available.
In another tweet, Goyal said that tomorrow we are ready to deliver 125 labor special trains from Maharashtra. You said that you have a list of workers ready. Therefore, you are requested to send all the prescribed information such as where the train will run, the list of passengers according to the trains, their medical certificate and where to go, please send all this information to the General Manager of Central Railway in the next 1 hour so that We can plan trains on time.
After this, the Union Minister said in another tweet that it is sad that it has been one and a half hours, but the Maharashtra Government has not given the scheduled information of yesterday’s 125 trains to the Central Manager, Central Railway. It takes time to plan a train and we do not want the trains to come to the station and stand empty. So it is impossible to plan without complete information.
