To prevent the spread of the corona virus, migrant workers in different parts of the country are seen walking on the roads and rail tracks on their way back home during the lockdown. In view of this, the Union Home Ministry has issued instructions.

Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla has written a letter to all the states and union territories to ensure that there is no movement of migrant laborers on roads or railway tracks. Bhalla instructed the states that migrant laborers be sent through special buses or labor special trains.

If migrant workers are found walking on the streets, they should be taken to a nearby shelter home and the responsibility of their food and water will rest with the state governments. It will be the responsibility of the states to facilitate the movement of stranded migrant workers who are willing to go to their home states. The government has run special labor trains for migrant laborers.
