UP CM Yogi Adityanath’s U-turn on permission issue for migrants

The Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath has taken a U-turn, two days after he declared that permission would be needed if other states need workers from UP. The issue sparked a major controversy and an official spokesman has now said that the government would not include this clause of ‘prior permission’ in the bye-laws of the Migration Commission. It was also informed that government is working on modalities to set up the commission to provide jobs and social security to migrant workers returning to the state. It has named the migration commission as the ‘Shramik Kalyan Aayog’ (Workers welfare commission).
