Corona Lockdown 4.0 High Level Review by Rajasthan CM
Offices will be able to be run in educational institutions and malls
Jaipur, 19 May. Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said that the state government understood the pain of the workers returning home on foot and arranged for camps and food for them along with sending them through trains and buses. Due to this, the number of workers on foot has reduced considerably. We had given the task of these arrangements to the subdivision officers, which they have done well. Due to these camps, workers are now reaching their destinations by bus and train instead of walking.
Shri Gehlot was conducting a high-level review on the fourth phase of the movement of migrants and lockdown at the Chief Minister's residence on Tuesday. He said that the condition of corona infection in the state is currently under control with the efforts of the state government and with the support of the common man. In view of this, some more necessary activities can be allowed in the state as per the guidelines of the Central Government. He directed that permission should be given for non-academic activities in educational institutions in the state and offices operated in malls with the adherence to social distancing and health protocols.
The Chief Minister said that it is our endeavor that the workers as well as the trains reach their destination as soon as possible through special buses. It was informed in the meeting that Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Maharashtra have been discussed at the level of the Chief Secretary and other officials for consent on buses. Shri Gehlot instructed that this system should be carried out effectively by coordinating with other states as well, so that labor shortage can be reduced.
Get Support from Bhamashahs for the quarantine of needy workers coming from abroad
The Chief Minister said that many workers in the Gulf countries go for livelihood, but many of them are not so financially competent.
