Date: April 17, 2020
The Hon’ble Prime Minister’s nationwide address on the lockdown extension, did not emphasise any concrete policy measures needed to urgently support migrant workers. . While we wholeheartedly support the government in its fight against the COVID-19, we release this statement with a great sense of urgency and anguish, reiterating the large scale, ongoing humanitarian crisis that has simultaneously unfolded and has escalated in the country.
