The patience of hundreds of workers waiting for the train and other means to go home responded. About 150 workers left for the railway station on foot from Jakhan in Rajpur. When the police saw them on the way, they asked the reason for leaving in this way. The workers said that all of them have registered, but so far no information has been given regarding sending them home. They came to know that the train will be going from Dehradun. In such a situation, they are going to catch a train. The police persuaded everyone to calm down and stay at DBS College.
In the morning, dozens of workers were going from Rajpur Road via the Jakhan area towards the Clock tower. When they were passing through the LAU worker Pushpa Rawat, she talked to the workers. Workers reported that they hail from Saharsa Bihar and was stationed at a place around Jakhan. There were neither food and drink arrangements nor to send them home.
The LIU personnel informed the officials about this. LAU Inspector Devendra Negi reached the spot, but by then the workers had reached Dilaram Chowk. The police persuaded everyone from here to DBS College on the lane from Pine Hall School, next to Jal Sansthan, via Old Survey Road, where they are currently sheltered. Police also arranged for everyone’s food here.
