After his Government reportedly deployed a hundred buses for migrant workers from Delhi to take them to their destinations in Uttar Pradesh, Chief Minister (CM) of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal today (29 March) took to Twitter and made an appeal to them to stay back promising shelter and food, reports Asian News International (ANI).
He posted, "I am assuring you all that the Delhi Government has made arrangements for your food and stay. For the country's interest, do not move to your villages."
The latest appeal came as late Saturday evening, thousands of migrant and daily wage workers had amassed at Delhi's Anand Vihar bus terminal making serpentine, unending queues to get a ride back to their homes out of the national capital.
As per this report by The Times of India, the Delhi government employed 100 DTC buses to take people from the border to Hapur in west UP.
