30 March 2020 Current Events Lockdown and Fear of No Income Pushes Migrant Workers to Tread Homeward on Foot

However, the short-notice lockdown effectively trapped country's large number of migrant workers in no man's land. Even though Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman announced a relief package of 1.7 lakh Crore, the panic-stricken labourers are undertaking 500 km long journeys on foot in the absence of trains and buses. Although, this taxing on foot trek back home beats the purpose of the lockdown anyway.
