    "The government considers migrant workers, who have come from far flung parts of our country, as our own people and it is my firm belief that they too must be supported by the State," he said.

    Shramik trains are being operated by sharing the fare on a 85-15 ratio between the Railways and the state governments. According to reports, some states had refused to pay the fare for migrant workers, resulting in the labourers paying for the trips.
