Soon after West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee announced that her government had arranged for 105 special trains to bring back over 1.3 lakh migrant workers stranded in 12 States, Railway Minister Piyush Goyal stated that the State government was not giving permission for “enough” Shramik Special trains (run by the Centre to take migrants workers home) to the State.

On May 14, Mamata posted on social media: “Towards our commitment to helping all our people stuck in different parts of the country and who want to return back to Bengal, I am pleased to announce that we have arranged 105 additional special trains.

“Over the coming days, these special trains will embark from different states for various destinations across Bengal bringing our people back home.” The State government even gave details of where the trains would be coming from.

However, soon after, Piyush Goyal said, “Today I was informed in the evening that we received an informal communication that about 105 trains will be accepted by West Bengal in the next 30 days. Which means hardly 1.5-2 lakh migrant labourers can go back home to West Bengal, from now until 15th June….”.

 Shramik Special train services: New announcement by Indian Railways! The Shramik Special train services will now have up to three stoppages in the destination state, reported PTI. The Shramik Special train services are being operated to transport migrant workers, tourists, pilgrims, students as well as others who are stranded in different places. Besides, as per the latest order by the national transporter, these Shramik Special train services will now run with a full capacity of around 1,700 passengers instead of 1,200 passengers.

According to him, there are over 30 lakh people from Bengal in different parts of the country waiting to go home. “What will happen to the rest of them? They will have to either walk all the way to West Bengal or take a cycle or a bus or hitch on to a truck. Look at the colossal risk that lakhs and lakhs of labourers from West Bengal will have to suffer because the West Bengal government is not giving permission to the trains to enter West Bengal.”

He appealed to the State government to “please give permission for 105 trains every day” instead of asking for 105 trains over 30 days, “and we will send all the migrant labourers from West Bengal who want to go back home. We are not forcing anybody.”

A few days earlier, when Union Home Minister Amit Shah accused the Mamata government of not allowing migrants from Bengal to return home, the Trinamool leadership announced that it had requisitioned eight trains to bring back stranded migrants from different parts of the country. Countering the Trinamool’s claim, Piyush Goyal said, “West Bengal first gave permission to only two trains, then when the honourable Home Minister wrote to the State Chief Minister to allow trains to enter West Bengal, an announcement was made that eight more trains will be allowed, but until today afternoon only five out of those eight trains were allowed. Yesterday also I made an appeal to the West Bengal government to expeditiously give permission to send the migrant workers back home.”

The Railway Minister said that it “pained” him that despite the fact that the Indian Railways has 1,200 Shramik Special trains for migrant labourers, “States like West Bengal, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand are not giving enough permission so that we can run Shramik Special to their States.”

According to Piyush Goyal's chaired Railway Ministry, as of 11 May 2020, 468 Shramik Special train services have been operationalized in total from various states across India, in which, as many as 363 train services had already reached their destinations, while 105 train services are in transit.

These 363 Shramik Special train services were terminated in various states across the country like 1 train in Andhra Pradesh, 100 trains in Bihar, 1 train in Himachal Pradesh, 22 trains in Jharkhand, 30 trains in Madhya Pradesh, 3 trains in Maharashtra, 25 trains in Odisha, 4 trains in Rajasthan, 2 trains in Telangana, 172 trains in Uttar Pradesh, 2 trains in West Bengal, 1 train in Tamil Nadu.

These Shramik Special train services have ferried migrants to cities like Barauni, Titlagarh, Hatia, Basti, Tiruchchirappalli, Khandwa, Khurda Road, Prayagraj, Gaya, Darbhanga, Jagannathpur, Chhapra, Purnia, Varanasi, Balia, Lucknow, Jaunpur, Katihar, Danapur, Gorakhpur, Muzaffarpur, Saharsa, etc. According to the Railway Ministry, proper screening of passengers is being ensured before boarding the Shramik Special train. During the train journey, passengers are provided with free meals and water.

Meanwhile, Indian Railways is partially resuming passenger train services from 12 May 2020. The passenger train services with all air-conditioned coaches will be fully reserved and will have limited stoppages en route. All the 15 passenger train services will originate from the New Delhi railway station (NDLS).

The political war of words over the movement of migrant workers on Shramik Special trains continued as Railways Minister Piyush Goyal Friday accused the governments of West Bengal, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, and Rajasthan — all Opposition-ruled states — of not giving permission to receive the trains, drawing strong rebuttals from the states.

Targeting West Bengal, Goyal said he has been “given estimates that around 30-50 lakh migrant workers” from the state living across India want to go home, and accused the state of going slow in seeking trains to bring back its stranded people.

“West Bengal has just informed us, without giving any details, that it plans to take 105 trains over the next 30 days. If we ran 100 trains to West Bengal every day for the next 15-20 days, only then can everyone reach their homes and meet their families,” Goyal said in a video statement to news agency ANI posted on his Twitter account. “Till today, only seven trains were planned to the state,” he said.

Goyal said that at the rate at which Bengal was planning the trains, only 5-7 percent of the migrants would be able to reach home by trains. “If only 100 trains are run over 30 days, in my estimate, just 5-7 percent people will get the benefit of these trains. The rest may face much hardship. They may try to walk on the roads, walk along the tracks, go by trucks, cycle, buses, so many accidents may happen,” Goyal said.
