Thousands of migrant workers gathered at Ramlila Ground in Ghaziabad on Monday to register themselves for the Shramik Special Trains. According to news reports, these trains will leave for different parts of Uttar Pradesh later in the day.
It is visible that the gathering in Ghaziabad’s Ramlila Ground is not following social distancing rules. This can be a risk factor. There are reports of stranded migrant workers who have been walking for several days to reach their homes in different states.
It can be mentioned here that the Uttar Pradesh government has already restricted the movement of migrants without proper arrangements. The district magistrates were ordered to seal the borders. This has come into action after the road accident in the Aurauya district that killed 25 migrants following the collision between two trucks.
