Maharashtra: Migrant labourers continuing journey by walking on foot to reach their home towns

AIR
Despite several appeals by the Maharashtra government including Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, the migrant labourers are continuing with their journey by walking on foot with their family members to reach their home towns.

AIR correspondent reports that even as the Maharashtra government is grappling with the COVID-19 pandemic which is wreaking havoc in Mumbai, Pune, Aurangabad and other parts of the state, the administration is confronting another challenge as migrant labourers along with their family members heading to their native place from different parts of Mumbai.

The fortunate ones are going by special  trains but there are some who are proceeding with their journey by walking on foot in sweltering heat covering hundreds of kilometers to reach their destination.

It is not just the inter-state migration but within the state as well, especially those who adamant on reaching their home town in rural Maharashtra. Since many of these migrant labourers are going in groups on foot it is posing a threat of contracting infection of COVID-19. The migration of these labourers has however over-burdened police force and local administration.
