Hyderabad: MP Asaduddin Owaisi has written to Telangana Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar and Union Minister of Home Affairs Amit Shah requesting allocation of travel passes to 38 people from Telangana who are stuck at Delhi quarantine centres, despite completing their quarantine period and all their Covid-19 tests showing negative results.

The letter was written in light of the recent notification from the central government permitting migrants to return to their home states.

The letter stated that 38 people from Telangana were present at Nizamuddin Markaz and were quarantined in New Delhi since March 30, 2020. The families of those quarantined have brought to our notice that all their diagnostic tests have been negative and that they have completed their quarantine period but are still not able to return home from Delhi due to extension of lockdown which has resulted in non-availability of inter-state transport.”

The 58 TS natives are held up at quarantine facilities at Narela industrial area, Sultanpuri area, Sarvodaya Bal Vidyalaya, Lok Nayak Hospital, Badarpur Secondary School and Mandoli.
