    Since the railways have been closed for a long time now, the porters are in bad shape as they are away from work and not earning to support their families. They are eagerly waiting for the trains to start running and their lives will get back to the track again.

    As part of this, Commissioner Anupam Singh Gahlaut and Collector Shalini Agarwal distributed food kits to 5 porters at the railway station as a token of goodwill from the administration. The remaining 175 kits will be distributed to all the beneficiaries in 2 days by the Food Committee.

    The porters presently helping the administration in managing the travelling of the migrant labourers to various parts of the country from Vadodara. Police Commissioner expressed his happiness regarding their help and said this small help is not big against their efforts and appreciate their courage.

    Collector Shalini Agarwal said, the ration kits will be very useful for their families. She applauded their services day and night for helping the administration in distributing food packets and others to the migrant workers.
