A convoy of seventy-five buses left for Kota late in the evening.In this convoy, ambulance and police car were also available separately.
A highly placed source of the state government has said that,there are around two thousand children in kota who will be coming by these buses.The number of buses may increase as per requirement. The entire team had two senior nodal officers, one from the police department and one from the administration.These two names were decided in an efficient manner.
At the same time,it is also important that the state government should keep all these children in the Quarantine zone as soon as they reach Chhattisgarh. This period will be of fourteen days, all children will be examined and if the result of the test comes negative then only they will be permitted to go with their family.

In a significant relief for the students stranded in Rajasthan’s Kota district, the Chhattisgarh government on Friday sent 75 buses to the coaching hub to bring back more than 2,000 students hailing from different districts across the state.
Recently, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh brought back the stranded students from their states from Kota even as the lockdown continues and taking a cue from the other states, the Chhattisgarh chief minister too sought special permission from Union home minister Amit Shah by calling him on April 23.
Kudos to our government for the successful event.
