The letter read, "I write to you regarding 38 persons from Telangana who were present at Nizamuddin Markaz and were quarantined in New Delhi since March 30, 2020. These persons are quarantined in the quarantine facilities in Narela Industrial Area, Sultanpuri Area, Sarvodaya Bal Vidyalaya, Lok Nayak Hospital, Badarpur Secondary School and Mandoli."
He continued stating, the concerned persons' family members have brought to our notice that all their diagnostic tests have been returned as "negative" and that they have completed their quarantine period but are still unable to return from New Delhi due to sudden, successive extensions of lockdown period, and the consequent absence of any inter-state means of transport.
In this regard, Owaisi also requested the Chief Secretary of Telangana Government, Somesh Kumar stating that is important that the migrants should be allowed to safely return to their families in Telangana. "I request that this matter is urgently taken up with the Union Government, and necessary steps are taken to ensure that they are issued with a pass to return to Telangana at the earliest," he wrote in the letter to Kumar.
