23 migrants killed, 20 injured after trucks collide in UP's Auraiya; PM Modi condoles death
KANPUR: At least 23 migrant labourers were killed and 20 others injured when a truck carrying them collided with a DCM in Auraiya. Most of the migrants were coming from Rajasthan and were natives of Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal. Of the 20 injured, 15 of them were being shifted to PGI at Saifai in Etawah as their condition was described as critical.
Reports said the incident took place near Mihauli village under Kotwali police circle around 3.30am. Auraiya district magistrate Abhishek Singh said investigations were under way to establish the cause of the mishap. He said the priority was to provide best possible medical help to the injured.
The injured passengers have been admitted to a nearby hospital.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi condoled the death of migrant workers and said the go nment is carrying out relief work in full swing.
"The accident in Auraiya of Uttar Pradesh is very tragic. The go nment is carrying out relief work in full swing," the prime minister tweeted.
Taking a serious note of the incident, chief minister Yogi Adityanath has directed senior officials to visit the site and ensure proper medical help to the injured. “Chief Minister has also directed that all the injured be provided medical care immediately and the commissioner and IG Kanpur to visit the site and immediately file a report on the cause of the accident,” said UP Additional Chief Secretary (Home) Awanish Awasthi.
Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav slammed the ruling BJP for turning a blind eye to the problems faced by migrants. Describing the incident as 'heart wrenching', the former UP CM said the go nment must now start focussing on the woes of the migrants.
The Samajwadi Party chief demanded that the state go nment must release an ex-gratia relief of Rs 10 lakh each to the kin of the deceased.
Recently at least 15 migrant workers were killed in three separate incidents in Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Bihar. The Uttar Pradesh go nment had on Friday announced that district authorities must ensure that migrant workers do not walk or cycle home and all such persons must be provide transport.

Some idiots believe all the issues, accidents, deaths and plight of migrants is due to Modiji and his decisions. Did modiji asked migrants to sleep on train track ? Did he ask migrants travel to their homeland? It was the congress who created confusion among migrants and instigated migrants to go to their homes. So that virus will spread within migrants and across india. Then blame modiji for mismanagement and decisions .
No no Modi is not responsible for anything. Mahatma Gandhi, Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi, Vadra...they are responsible. Are you happy now??
the ppl should have patience .we have around 100 migrants worker in our factory .taking care of them . yesterday around 20 person left by cycle without informing .so who will be blamed for this ?? what Modi her can do any this .in this difficult time all of us have to take our share of responsibility .
Completely agree. Government is not responsible for stupid people doing stupid actions.
Unless there is strict guidelines on Truck drivers, these accidents continue unabated.
What will these hapless victims get from the 20 Lakh Crore package is the million dollar question today
unfortunate. more pathetic then the mishap is the glee of the opposition parties.
Govt is fully responsible for these incidents.
It's very very sad to see these things. It might not be possible to prevent accidents but it is definitely possible to feed the hungry migrants. Request the concerned authorities to please do the needful.
20 Lakh crore Package gone in Bjp pocket Migrants poors will not get a single penny
And the credit for it goes to Modiji..
Congress top leaders created confusion among poor migrants all over India. They are answerable for these mishaps.
we all Indians pray to The Almighty that may their souls rest in peace.
Now with so little traffic on the Roads what is causing so many crashes can only be excessive fatigue or Rash Driving
bjp says our ancestors were more advanced than today so it wants to take the whole country into that time.
All blind anti-nationals have got an opportunity to blame Modi govt without reasoning the situations currently during this pandemic.
MODI GOVERNMENT AN ABSOLUTE FAILURE IN HANDLING COVID MEDICALLY, SOCIALLY AND ECONOMICALY.
Still the go nment is not taking steps to collect migrants from roads and take them to their cities or towns.
It is a tragedy which neither can be forecasted nor stopped because, inspite of all arrangements nothing seem to work with the migrants.
feeling very bad
really surprised to see such news everyday. Please do needful to avoid such accidents.
If they were NRI, Modi govt would send planes and make all arrangements.
Central go nment has given 11000 crores for the shelter, food and travel for this migrant workers,what all this state go nment doing ,what there officials are doing,why are they not making arrangement,what they are doing to this funds .
Truely Indian By
v pathetic shame on such govt
