Returnee By Train Only

Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Tuesday ordered that in the future returnees from the Gujarat's city should be ferried here only by trains.

Taking note of bus accidents besides arduous long journeys while bringing migrant workers from Surat back home, Chief Minister issued orders in this regard.  
 
Three accidents have occurred since Saturday night while transporting Odias from Surat to the state, mostly in Ganjam district, killing two people and leaving several others injured.
 
Mr.Patnaik gave this direction to the officials while chairing a review meeting on COVID-19 situation.
 
While a bus had an accident on Saturday night causing minor injuries to some, two buses ferrying migrants had met with accidents on a hilly road in the state on Sunday leading to two deaths and injuries to several people.
 
Besides accidents, the Chief Minister's decision was also prompted by difficulties faced by the travellers, particularly women and children, a covering long distance of over 1600 km by road.
 
Nearly three lakh Odia workers mostly from the Ganjam district are engaged in diamond cutting and other works in Gujarat's Surat city.
 
Two Shramik special trains ferried 2,400 odisha natives on Monday night to Brahmapur in Ganjam district from Surat.
