Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has asked various state governments to provide a list of migrant workers from Uttar Pradesh in their state so that arrangements could be made for their return.

According to the government spokesman, over seven lakh migrants have returned to the state and the government wants to bring back all those who wish to return.

The Chief Minister said that 37 trains, bringing back about 30,000 migrant workers, had already reached Uttar Pradesh and 20 more are expected on Thursday.

“If the other state governments provide us a list of those wanting to return, we will make arrangements accordingly,” the chief minister said.
