Corona crisis: Railways stopped many trains from today, the difficulty of poor workers going home from metros increased

The railways have announced the cancellation of several trains from today, amid the exodus of poor and laborers from the metropolis due to the terrible wave of Corona infection across the country. This decision has been taken by Western Railway at present. The Western Railway tweeted and wrote, “Some special trains to and from Western Railway stations have been canceled.

As per the order of Western Railway, Veraval-Ahmedabad-Veraval and Jamnagar-Vadodara-Jamnagar Superfast Special trains have been canceled till further orders. After this decision, 09258 Veraval-Ahmedabad Special Train, 09257 Ahmedabad-Veraval Special, 02960 Jamnagar-Vadodara Super Fast Special Train and 02959 Vadodara-Jamnagar Super Fast Special will be canceled till further orders.

However, it is a matter of relief that despite the cancellation of these trains, Western Railway has announced to run some summer special trains for North India. According to the railways, many trains will run from Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand and other places from April 20. However, due to rising Corona cases, there is a possibility that the Railways may cancel more trains.

Significantly, due to the worsening conditions and fear of complete lockdown in the entire country due to the horrific wave of corona virus, a large number of people have started migrating from the metros to their villages. A large number of people from other parts of the country including Maharashtra, Gujarat, Punjab, Delhi have started returning to their homes in states like UP, Bihar. In such a situation, due to the cancellation of trains by the railways, the difficulties of the poor-laborers will increase in the hour of this crisis. There are fears that the situation may not be like the Corona lockdown last year, when millions of workers had to leave their homes on foot due to the closure of trains.
