Migrant workers on board a “Shramik Special” train travelling from Gujarat to Bihar were forced to fight over packets of food when the train halted at Kanpur railway station. Many food packets were wasted in the process, NDTV reported. The reason for the skirmish, according to the workers, was the sub-standard quality of the food served to them on the train.
Another video that highlights the poorly managed provisions made by the authorities for migrant workers travelling on the “Shramik Special” trains surfaced from Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Junction in Uttar Pradesh. Migrant workers here were seen grabbing water bottles kept on the platform of the station. They also complained about the lack of food and water on the train.
