The corona virus has knocked once again in the country. Lockdown has been imposed in some cities and night curfew has been imposed. Many other restrictions have once again come into force in the country.
At such a time, migrant laborers living in major cities like Delhi, Pune and Mumbai are once again preparing to return home. According to some media reports, a large number of laborers are reaching the railway stations and bus stations of these cities.
Let us know that after the lockdown last year, lakhs of workers were forced to migrate to their villages. Since the train, bus, air services were all closed at that time, those workers had left for their villages on foot and even by bicycle. Photos of these laborers were forced to travel thousands of kilometers.
