CM authorises police sations and SDM to issue inter-district passes Asks officials to ensure no workers leave on foot
Jaipur: Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has said that workers trapped due to lockdown should not leave for their place of residence on foot. Gehlot stressed that the state government is making proper arrangements to take them to their respective places through buses and trains.
He instructed the officers to make arrangements of camps and food for the workers who have left on foot for their respective homes. “In this hour of crisis, protecting every person’s life and sharing their sorrows, is our top priority,” Gehlot said, during a high level meeting to review the movement of migrants at CMR.
“Those migrants and workers who have got themselves registered for travel, should not face any troubles for issuing e-pass to them and for this it is needed that the e-pas system is upgraded.
Those migrants that have been issued a pass, they should be informed about departure of train so that they can reach station according to schedule,” Gehlot said.
CM also stated that in case of medical emergency, death or other important work, the process should be simplified and passes should be issued without any delay.
“If it becomes extremely important process of offline pass should also be initiated in addition to online pass. These offline passes could be issued by concerned police station and SDM office and it should also be ensured that people do not have to travel to SDM office of local police station but get these passes on phone,” he said Gehlot asked officials to coordinate with officials of Indian Railways to increase the number of trains from Rajasthan and into the state as well.
“it is important that migrants and workers reach their homes but there should be no lacunae in their screening and quarantine facilities. Home or institutional quarantine of every person who comes from outside should be ensured,” Gehlot said.
