A feud ensued between Indian returnees from Bangladesh and the government officials at Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport in Kolkata on Wednesday when they were asked to stay in quarantine at five-star and three-star hotels in the city.
The returnees demanded to allow them to go home, reports Zee News.
The passengers said staying in hotels was too expensive. It would cost Rs50-60 thousand per week. They raised the question that how they could stay in such hotels spending so much money while they had been almost starving for the last two months.
"We do not have money for food. How can we stay in a hotel? The government has to think for us or send us back to our home districts," said one of the passengers carried by a special flight from Bangladesh.
