Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren Writes to Amit Shah Seeking Permission to Airlift Stranded Workers
Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren on Wednesday wrote to Union Home Minister Amit Shah requesting permission to operate chartered flights to evacuate the state's migrant workers stranded in Ladakh and in a few states in the northeast.
This is the second such letter written by Soren requesting permission to run chartered flights.
"So far we have been able to get back 1.5 lakh stranded workers, students and other persons by trains and buses," Soren wrote.
He mentioned a similar letter written on May 12 requesting permission to airlift and bring back the people stranded in Andaman and Nicobar islands.
But West Bengal has so far given permission to only seven trains," Goyal had said last week.
