I appeal to Sonia Gandhi with folded hands not to do politics on this issue.

I can say this with sadness, even while I can say it comfortably. Congress can Why don't the states with governments ask for more trains. I am saying in the words of Congress that the Congress is drumming every day. Tomorrow sit on the way with the migrants Is this the time to talk about the tax, is it time to do it? Aren't they the drummers? Actually, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi came to Delhi on Saturday to meet the migrant laborers near Sukhdev Vihar. “'

People all over the country are sadly talking about what has happened to the migrants.” When we are taking steps together with so many states, then what is this way?
