Labourers Travelling From Cities To Villages Amid Coronavirus Lockdown Face Food Crisis

Here are some tragic stories of labourers who have been travelling for 1000 km from cities to their houses in villages, without food or water.

Poverty-stricken workers and labourers have been the worst sufferers during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown. They have been travelling over 1000 km on foot to reach their homes in remote villages in groups due to lack of transportation facilities. A young man from Faridabad, Haryana has resorted to cycling all the way to Siwan, Bihar. Civilians rest on the footpath under the flyover on the Delhi-U.P. border after walking for hours together. They still have to go a long way for another thousand kilometres to be able to set foot in their houses.

Two sisters, Shabana and Rizwana also have to walk for 1000 km to reach Motihari in Bihar. Their father is a daily-wage worker and doesn’t have any money to feed his children even two times a day. Whatever little is left with them, they have tied and set off for their hometown. They have been walking from 10 p.m and managed to get some water along the way.
