New Delhi: A large number of migrant labourers have gathered on the Delhi-Uttar Pradesh border in Ghazipur. After the Auraiya accident, the Uttar Pradesh government has ordered its district officials to arrange buses for migrant labourers on foot. After this, this crowd has gathered at the border.
Significantly, 26 people died in Auraiya’s horrific accident. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is also deeply saddened by the loss of life of the workers personally.
