Congress leader, Rahul Gandhi termed as absolutely absurd the statement by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Yogi Adityanath that other states will have to seek his government's permission to engage workers from UP. "I think people are first Indian and then they belong to their states. The decision on whether somebody goes to work from UP to the rest of the country is not the Chief Minister's. It is of the people of India and the people of Uttar Pradesh", he told a press conference via video conference.
