Udaipur : It was a moment of immense joy for the 170 migrants from Kuwait who had tears of happiness in their eyes as  they arrived Udaipur in special buses on Friday morning. These were among the hundreds of other repatriates who were flown back to Rajasthan under the Vande Bharat mission. The flight landed in Jaipur on Thursday and after the  statutory procedure was completed, those belonging to Udaipur division  were sent to Udaipur. While some ofthe men were sent to their home districts, others were taken to an institutional quarantine facility. 

Since the lockdown period,the hundreds of workers who were living in Kuwait had been demanding the state government to arrange  their comeback since they  had been living in pathetic conditions after  losing jobs and no savings to survive. Their families specially from Banswara and Dungarpur districts had been pressuring the government to get back their relatives working in large  numbers in  Kuwait, most of them were menial labourers. ” Of the 170 returnees , 51 are from Udaipur, 45 from Dungarpur, 6 Pratapgarh, and 68 are from Banswara.

Presently,We have  arranged stay for  51 of the returnees  at Singhania University campus where all their needs including food, lodging and  health during the quarantine period would be take care of by the government. They would be  regularly checked  and after completion of quarantine period they would be send to their respective districts”  divisional commissioner Vikas S.Bhale said.
