Ludhiana, June 4

Industry Minister Sunder Sham Arora today said migrant labourers, who had gone to their native places after the lockdown was imposed, were keen to come back to Punjab.

Keeping this in mind, the state government has requested the Central Government to run a special train so that they could come back and rejoin the jobs at the earliest.

Arora said two buses, carrying migrants, would reach Hoshiarpur tomorrow.

Talking to The Tribune, Arora said Punjab was the lone state where 103 units got the Centre’s approval to make the personal protective equipment (PPE), which were being supplied all over the country.

“Hindustan Latex Limited has given orders worth about Rs 302 crore to almost 18 companies in Punjab to make the PPE kits. We have written to the Chief Ministers of various states to inform them that they can place orders for PPE kits and masks in Punjab,” said Arora. — TNS
