Delhi lockdown triggers panic among migrant workers, last year-like scenes at Anand Vihar Bus Terminal | Sangbad Pratidin

News Daily Digital Desk: Najehal country in the second wave of coronavirus infection. Infection has increased in the capital Delhi. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has announced a lockdown to handle the situation. And then came the familiar picture of the helplessness of migrant workers. The kind of picture that has been seen repeatedly since the nationwide lockdown was announced in March last year. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has appealed to the Center to stand by the migrant workers in this situation. A crowd of workers was seen at the Anand Bihar bus terminus in Ghaziabad soon after Kejriwal’s announcement on Monday. It was not possible for the migrant workers to follow the cowardly rules like the normal social distance in that helpless crowd. Not only is there a risk of infection, but they are also reluctant to return home as bus fares are out of reach overnight. Allegedly, the bus drivers have increased the fare up to ten times, realizing the opportunity! Speaking to an all-India media outlet about his helpless situation, one worker was heard to say, “We eat day in and day out. The Chief Minister should have given us some time before announcing the lockdown. Realizing the opportunity, the drivers are increasing the fare. Where we can go home within 200 rupees, the cost is increased from 3 thousand to 4 thousand rupees is being demanded! How do we get home? ” #WATCH | Delhi: A huge rush of migrant workers at Anand Vihar Bus Terminal.Delhi Govt has imposed a 6-day lockdown beginning at 10 pm tonight. pic.twitter.com/LDFesCKiKQ— ANI (@ANI) April 19, 2021

That’s how last year’s lockdown pushed down the earnings recession. In this case again a lockdown. For the time being, even if it is for 7 days, if the period is extended, the migrant workers will realize that the misery is skyrocketing. So they are desperate to return home. On the head and neck, the burden of the bag was seen to move around helplessly. The same picture is on the Ghaziabad border. Hundreds of migrant workers also flocked there. In the words of one worker, “There will be no work during the lockdown. The government will not help either. That’s why I’m going back home. Because if the lockdown period is not extended, you will have to die without getting food. ”The migrants are fleeing once again. In such a situation, it is the responsibility of the central government to put money in their bank accounts. But will the government blaming the public for spreading corona take such a supportive step? Congress leader Rahul Gandhi thinks that workers should stand by their side. In a tweet on Tuesday morning, he demanded that the central government provide some financial support to the migrant workers’ bank accounts. However, he also taunted the Center with his question: “Where the government is blaming the common man for the corona infection, will the government take such a ‘public welfare’ step?”
