Gehlot-Yogi Team Up to Send Back Kota Students Home

About 359 buses have been sent by UP government to bring back around 8000 studentrs from Kota, who have been held up there due to lockdown. The buses will take the students from the district and will drop them back to their respective districts.

Lok Sabha speaker and Kota MP Om Birla took the initiative to arrange for the movement. He spoke about the issue to the Home Secretary, who helped in the facilitation of arrangments between UP and Rajasthan.

After carefully listing the buses and the students travelling in them, Kota administration will send off the students , who will be moved from six different dispatch points in the city. Every bus will not carry more than 30 students and the students boarding the buses will be screened and will be given mask and sanitizer along with food packets and water bottle.

Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot tweeted on the matter saying, “As the UP govt called back students of UP living in Kota Rajasthan, it can also be done for students from other states. Students in Kota can be sent to their home states on the consent of the concerned state govt so that these young boys and girls do not panic or feel depressed.”

Earlier, Gehlot had adopted a proactive approach for migrant workers and has been urging different state governments to send back Rajasthan migrant labourers back to the state.

Over 1.5 lakh students live in Kota to get coaching for medical and engineering entrance exams. A large number of students had left Kota on April 20 after lockdown was announced in Rajasthan and trains stopped running.
