Several states aren’t giving permission for ‘shramik’ trains which pains me: Piyush Goyal

While speaking to ANI in the national capital on May 14 amid COVID-19 outbreak, the Union Railways Minister Piyush Goyal spoke on ‘shramik special’ trains. He said, “It pains me that several states such as West Bengal, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand are not giving enough permission for ‘shramik special’ trains to enter their states.” “West Bengal first gave permission for only two trains, but after Union Home Minister Amit Shah wrote to state Chief Minister then announcement was made that eight more trains will be allowed. But until today (May 14) afternoon, only 5 out of those 8 trains were allowed by the WB government,” Piyush Goyal added.
