Vijayawada: Over 1,000 persons including students and migrant workers from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, who were stranded in Punjab, were brought back by a special train today.

"Students from LP University, Chandigarh University and migrant labourers from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, who were stranded there since lockdown began have been brought back. From Rayanapadu, the authorities are taking us to various district headquarters to keep us in quarantine. We were provided food by the concerned authorities on the train. All facilities were provided to us. We reached our home state and we are happy that both the Punjab and Andhra Pradesh government helped us," he added.

Sai Kiran, another student said, "We are really happy after reaching our native place. For the last two months, I was in isolation and I finally reached Andhra Pradesh after both the governments of Punjab and Andhra came forward and helped us."
