The migrant across the nation has been started the journey towards their hometown in huge number. They are coming down to the street and violating the lockdown disciplines. An hour after the announcement of the extension of lockdown by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday, from many places across the nation, migrant labours have started the journey towards their home.
In Bandra West, Mumbai, migrant labour gathered outside the railway station, as they do not have a job to earn or no food to eat. All they are urging for going home. The police came to the spot, do a lathi-charge to disperse the gathering to secure the area within two hours.
In Mumbra, Thane district, migrant labours have started demanding that they want to walk towards their home. The police tried to calm them down in earlier stages, but as they started dispersing, the police started lathi-charge. Srikakulam also witnesses such urge to reach home by walking towards the destination. But the police stopped them initially, and they’ve shifted to the relief camps where they are going to provide Rs 500 per head and 12 kg of rice.
Most of the migrant workers are complaining that they don’t have money to buy foods. Additionally, they don’t have any job to survive. All they want to get back to their home. Authorities and NGOs are trying to help these migrant workers at such pace, but it is not adequate for the huge crowd.
