           Endless Journey..Miles to go


The outbreak of Pandemic COVID-19 has affected the entire humankind to its worst and has victimized the society without any discrimination whether it is affluent or Poor.

With the announcement of 21 days nationwide complete lockdown by ours honble Prime Minister on 24 march to stop the surge of novel corona virus the most affected within the society have came to known as Migrant daily wage workers.

These daily wage workers who hail mainly from states of Bihar and Uttar pradesh have been out of their native place and been residing mainly in states like New Delhi,Maharastra,Punjab,Hariyana,Rajasthanin search of bread and butter for their family and For better livelihood for them which somehow,their native place could not provide to them.

Now, Surrounded by complete lockdown the life of these migrant workers have came to standstill after being rendered jobless resulting in vanishing their daily wages.

Further,deprive of shelter to live in and food to eat at their respective places,their condition is being deterioted and the lockdown is proving to be catastrophic for indias million of migrants and daily wage workers and they have no choice except fleeing to their native place for survival neglecting the basic principal of lockdown.

The irony is that,the gloomy and painful incidents of these workers while returning back to their native place has one again highlighted the fact that during any calamity they are the one who suffer the most.With Railways and Bus services have been suspended the exodus of migrant workers and their families are walking for hundreds of kilometers to reach their respective villagesWith the Government imposing strict restrictions on crossing state borders most migrants are now stuck in between with no food or shelter.

Moreover,these innocent  unskilled people have been punished by the police on their way in form of beaten up for breaching the rules of lockdown,Some have been sanitized inappropriately and unhumanly on their way by the local administration,some have been made to hop and crawal on the road by the police.above all, many laborers met road accident while their way back and lost their lives whereas many elderly got heart attack after walking hundreds of kilometers .Above all they are most vulnerable to the infections of virus since they are moving an endless journey.

Unfortunatly,those migrant workers who have managed to reach their home somehow are facing social stigmatization amid covid-10 scare and are facing social-bycott

The Crisis and distress of Migrant labourers have been Observed by honble Supreme court by quoting it bigger issue than COVID-19 and has sought stats report from the center even.

Its high time the Government should utilize these unskilled workforce by engaging them in supply of essential commodities door to door which is the need of the hour and these workforce should be given daily wages for that.By doing this not only their livelihood will be intact but also mass migration will be stopped after all it is a matter of lives.
