Congress is offering to pay for fare for tickets which are already borne by the government and migrants are not charged for the same. So if migrants are not paying for the railway fare, what exactly is Congress offering to pay?

Indian Railways official clarifies that the railways is charging standard fare for the special trains which is just 15% of the total cost incurred by the railways. This has to be borne by the state governments. Till now 34 such Special trains are run where food and water is also provided for free to the migrant workers.

Soon after it is cleared that the fares are not to be borne by the migrant workers, Congress decided to step in and offered to pay non-existent fare the migrants are ‘charged’. Former Congress President and senior leader Rahul Gandhi took this opportunity to score a few political brownie points.

  1. Antarajee, you have written a brilliant piece of article.
    But one fact I wish to brings you in your knowledge.
    It is wrong to suggest that stranded migrant labour has to paid only 15% Train Fare.
    For your kind information one special train which originate from Vasai (Mumbai) whose destination was Gorakhpur U.P, the railway through state govt charged a train fare fare amount of ₹740, which include food and charge of mask which railway distribute.

    You can check BJP supported Bihar C.M Nitish Kumar Twitter account, press bulletin in which he clearly stated that his govt will return all the train fare + other expenses which migrant labours paid while coming to their hone town.

    One more thing, all over India the quarantine period prescribed is of 14 days, but it’s a strange thing that Bihar govt decided to quarantine for 21 days.
    If you know the reason then please provide it on your Twitter account or in your reply.

    I hope you will change your News Portal into Youtube channel and will present Video blog for viewers as it is needed for expansion.
    Thanks for brilliant piece of article.
