Tens of thousands of people have been walking home from India’s big cities after losing their jobs because of a lockdown to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus since late March and yesterday, a train ran over migrant workers sleeping on the track, killing at least 14 of the group, who were apparently on their way to their home villages.
B-Town celebs such as Amyra Dastur and Alankrita Shrivastava took to their social media profiles and slammed the authorities and government for such an irresponsible act.
Actress Amyra Dastur shared, “This should have NEVER happened. The lockdown was implemented on 24/03/2020 without any plans to take care of the ones who would be the most affected. Negligence at its peak! We need to see where the relief fund is being distributed. #EnoughIsEnough Unforgivable”
Filmmaker Alankrita Shrivastava wrote, “Can only feel shame at how we are treating the labour force of our country. Stripping them of all rights and all dignity. History will not forget. We have blood on our hands”
It’s been reported that the train driver tried to stop the freight train when he saw the labourers on the tracks in the western state of Maharashtra. The migrant labourers travelling to Chhattisgarh were crushed by a goods train in Maharashtra’s Aurangabad.
Under the lockdown, all public transport has been suspended so migrant workers heading home often have to walk long distances to get there. The government has extended the lockdown until May 17.
The opposition and activists have criticised the government for not helping the workers in reaching their respective homes across the countries.
