New Delhi: Migrant labourers have once again started migrating fearing a lockdown after rapidly increasing corona infection cases across the country, including Delhi-NCR. The latest scene of the exodus was witnessed in Gurugram on Tuesday when daily wage labourers were seen returning home amid the panic of covid restrictions and lockdown.
The night curfew was imposed earlier to control the third wave of the corona epidemic and now new restrictions have added to the woes of migrant workers. In view of the impact of the work and the difficulties in the lockdown imposed last year, the migrant labourers are now migrating. A crowd of returnees home was also seen on the streets and bus stands on Tuesday. These people are once again afraid of lockdown.
Talking to the media, Amarinder Kumar Yadav, who works as a driver, said that there may be a lockdown in Gurugram at any time, so I have decided to go back to my native state. I am not getting any work due to covid restrictions, it is difficult to survive without income.
