Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee announced several relaxations in restrictions from June 1. Mamta said that religious places can open up from June 1. After Karnataka, West Bengal is the second state which has decided to open the religious places for devotees. However, the Chief Minister made it clear that not more than 10 people will gather at one time.
Mamta said that from June 8, the presence of all employees in government and private offices will be allowed. Mamta said that due to a large number of migrant workers, cases of Coronavirus infection are increasing in the state.
The Chief Minister of West Bengal has been criticizing the Railways for the last few days for bringing a large number of migrant workers back to the state without consulting their government. He claimed, “This is being done without following the distance from the social gathering.”
The Chief Minister asked, “Are the Indian Railways running ‘Corona Express’ trains instead of Shramik Special trains.” He also said why no more trains are being run for the migrant workers returning from other states.
