KAMLA KISHORE Yadav from Bahraich in UP came to Chandigarh in January this year to bring in cash and send a section to it to his family, be that as it may, stuck in the Bapu Dham Colony (BDC)- 26 cushion zone for as far back as a quarter of a year, has he lost all his profit, yet amassed obligation.
Yadav is returning to his town with an obligation of Rs 4,500, which he owes to two of his kindred workers, who had shown up in Chandigarh before him. Bapu Dham Colony, a hotspot of COVID-19 patients represents in any event 80 percent of the complete cases in the city and was announced a control zone on May 5.
Kamal Kishore Yadav said, “On arriving here, I started working as a Palledaar (loading-unloading vegetable sacks) with a trader at Grain Market-26. I took refuge in a small room, which was already being shared by two persons from my home district. Everything was smooth but all of sudden uniformed personnel came and sealed the colony. We were trapped in the buffer zone since March 22. I am illiterate and only came to know about the government aid after someone informed me on May 17. I only received a pack of dry ration once on May 18. All my small earnings got exhausted and I had to borrow money from my fellow workers, who had come to Chandigarh before me.”
