The exodus of migrant labourers from different parts of India towards their hometowns is a crisis that continues to worsen by the day. In another distressing video tweeted by election strategist Prashant Kishor, migrant labourers were seen locked up in a cell after arriving in Bihar.
In the video, migrant labourers are seen crying and requesting to be let out. “I have come here from Ahmedabad,” a weeping man said. “They have been saying since morning that they will let us go but they have not.”
Migrant labourers have been the worst hit during the 21-day nationwide lockdown that came into effect on March 25.
