Politics on migrant laborers: Police stopped Congress buses in Noida


Jagran Team, Noida. There was a day-long politics on the Congress’s campaign to send the migrants to their home district. The Congress kept claiming that they had five hundred buses to transport the workers to their home district, while the police officials kept saying that only thirty buses were found. Most of the situation was not such that workers could be sent from them, buses are being investigated.

Sandeep Singh, personal secretary of Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, also reached the Noida-Ghaziabad border with buses on Tuesday night. During this time, he has written a letter from UP’s Additional Chief Secretary Home. They have said that we have been along the border of Noida and Ghaziabad since the morning of 19 May and there has been no response from you. We will remain till 4 pm on 20 May.

At the behest of the top leadership, the Congress, under the leadership of Congress State Vice President Pankaj Malik and General Secretary Virendra Guddu, District President Manoj Chaudhary and Noida Metropolitan President Shahabuddin, submitted a list of five hundred buses to the district administration. It was decided that the buses would be sent to Expo Mart of Greater Noida. At the same time ARTO will check the status of buses. The workers will then be sent home through the administration. At around 5.30 pm, Congress leaders reached the expressway near Sector-125 with a convoy of buses.

Buses near Mahamaya flyover were stopped by DCP Zone 1 Sankalp Sharma and ADCP Rannvijay Singh seeking information about the drivers and their papers. But, the Congressmen stuck to the Greater Noida Expo Mart carrying buses. This was fiercely debated on both sides. Meanwhile, the police officers called ARTO and his team on the spot and started checking the vehicles, then the Congressmen started shouting slogans. Congress state general secretary Virendra Guddu said that about 100 buses were stopped on the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway near Sector-125, while some buses were parked at Sector-39 police station.

DCP Zone Sankalp Sharma said that ARTO has been asked to investigate the buses available by Congressmen. There were about thirty buses on the spot, officials of the Transport Department are investigating them. Will take further decision only after investigation.

ARTO of Gautam Budh Nagar AK Pandey said that we stood at the Greater Noida Expo Mart throughout the day, but not a single Congress bus arrived here. Some buses were reported to be on the expressway. It is being investigated.
