Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore urged Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot for immediate action in the case.

According to the official, three people are missing and rescue operation by National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) teams is underway.

The development comes after, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) granted the permission for movement of the stranded people, including migrants labourers, workers, students, tourists, and provided the procedure for the same.

Meanwhile, the lockdown, which was scheduled to end on May 3, has been extended by another two weeks.

Bihar: Police removed the students of Patna University who were staging a protest outside the gate of the University against state Government, demanding to bring back students stranded in Kota, Rajasthan. Police personnel were deployed in the area.

"But, (we) also urge the government to show similar concern for lakhs of poor migrant labourer families who are still being forced to live a hellish life away from their homes," the BSP leader added.

"We do not have ample facilities to treat the number of patients we receive. Keeping this in mind, the government has started the construction of a new hospital with 500 beds," said Mehta.

The former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister demanded that CM Gehlot be dismissed and replaced by a new dispensation, claiming that otherwise more women will lose their children.

Mayawati stated that like Uttar Pradesh, it would have been better if the general secretary would have met the mothers, who lost their children due to the negligence of the state government.

The only way things will fall in place – is by escalating the issue nationally and highlighting state govt’s apathy and indifference in dealing with such crisis.
