Dimapur, April 20: The North East Executive Council of Janata Dal United (NEEC, JDU) has called upon State governments in the North East to start all preparation to bring back all stranded students, employees, other citizens, etc. stranded in different parts of the country in the yardstick application of the Uttar Pradesh Government by bringing several thousand stranded students from Kota in Rajasthan.
In a press communiqué, NEEC JDU chairman, Senchumo Lotha Nsn observed that the show of strength exhibited by the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh by bringing several thousand stranded students from Kota in Rajasthan, also known as the hub of coaching centres, has already thrown all norms and regulations of the nation-wide lockdown into the thin air.
“It has already opened the flood-gates for all the stranded students, migrant workers, employees, etc who are lockdowns in different states to pin hopes of being brought to their respective home-states,” he said, adding pressure has started to mount on the State governments of the day to take a call in the like of the bold manner that has been done by Yogi Adityanath.
“The states that are not able to take such similar action are bound to face the wrath of the public which can be converted towards political dimension resulting in the loss of faith by the voters. The central government must take immediate necessary action on this development and take into account those involve in this massive breakdown of regulation on the ongoing lockdown.”
The NEEC, JDU called upon the Prime Minister and Home Minister to make a public statement on the issue of Kota students homeward movements during the nationwide lockdown by making it clear whether the action of the CM of UP has the knowledge and consent of the Central Government.
