Thiruvananthapuram, May 19 : Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Tuesday informed that the Railways have announced a daily special non-AC Chair car train from Bengaluru to the state from May 21.
Addressing a press conference at the Government Secretariat this evening, the Chief Minister said, "A special non-AC train from Delhi to Kerala will leave New Delhi on May 20 at 6 pm with 1,304 passengers. The list includes 971 people from Delhi and 333 from UP, Jammu & Kashmir, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand." “Those who have expressed their desire to come back to Kerala and registered on the Norka website have been prioritised by the Government.
Pregnant women, the sick and children should come back first," he said, adding, "But we have observed that those who don’t need to come back urgently are taking advantage of the system thus denying the opportunities for those who genuinely need to come back. I request everyone not to rush and cooperate with the government's arrangements. We are making arrangements for all to come back. There might be some delay but everyone will be brought back”, the Chief Minister said.
All the details are being collected from those who are coming back from outside. The Police, health department and the local bodies would keep these details. (UNI)
