Chandigarh, April 27

Even as stranded pilgrims from Nanded, as well as labourers and students from Rajasthan, continued to reach home, the state government on Monday contacted the Delhi government to facilitate safe evacuation of 250 Sikh pilgrims stuck at Sri Majnu Ka Tila gurdwara in the national capital due to the lockdown.

A spokesperson said 152 students, stranded in Kota, were brought back to Punjab in specially hired buses up to Bathinda, from where they had been transported to their respective destinations through state government buses.

Apart from these, 2,900 labourers belonging to Punjab are returning to the state in 60 state government buses from Jaisalmer, where they were stranded in five relief camps. They are expected to reach Punjab on Tuesday morning via the Ganganagar entry point to the state.

Further, as many as 467 pilgrims reached Bathinda this evening in 13 public buses from Nanded and were on their way to their respective home towns or villages. — TNS
