Aam Aadmi Party MP Sanjay Singh will accompany 33 migrant laborers he is helping return to Bihar by a Delhi-Patna flight on Wednesday.
The AAP leader used 34 air tickets he is entitled to as a member of Parliament in a year to help these migrants reach their native state. They are scheduled to fly to the Bihar capital at 4 pm.
The move won praise from Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who tweeted that Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh’s initiative was inspiring to all. He said that those whom God had provided means should use those means to serve others.
Sanjay Singh has been sending migrants of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh by buses to their home districts earlier as well. Nearly 5 to 6 buses leave from Singh’s official residence in North Avenue here almost every day.
