Bhopal: Opposition Congress on Tuesday asked Madhya Pradesh government to take initiatives to bring back pilgrims from the state stranded in rain-ravaged Uttarakhand.

In a statement here, Leader of Opposition Ajay Singh said Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan should made special arrangements to ensure that pilgrims from MP, who had gone to the hill state and got stuck there due to heavy rains and landlines, are brought back safely.

Relatives of these pilgrims are a worried lot and they are spending anxious moments for the last three days but no initiative had been taken by the Government to address their concerns, the Congress leader maintained.
