In an exclusive interview with Network18 Group Editor-in-Chief Rahul Joshi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah slammed the Mamata Banerjee-led government in West Bengal for not allowing trains ferrying migrant workers to enter the state.
On being asked about Banerjee's reference to Shramik Special trains as "Corona Express", Shah retorted, "Does a Bengali migrant not have the right to go home?"
He said that over 1,200 trains have ferried thousands of migrants to Uttar Pradesh. Same is the case with Bihar. However, only 100 trains have reached Bengal, which is the least.
