The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) issued an order on Wednesday issued an order on allowing interstate movement of stranded migrant laborers, students, and tourists. This decision has been taken four days before the lockdown is going to end. This is seen as a move in the backdrop of day by day increasing inability of states to sustain migrant laborers as state revenues are drying up.
The MHA order issued by Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla said, “Due to lockdown, migrant workers, pilgrims, tourists, students, and other persons are stranded at different places.” MHA stated that the movement will be done under the mutual consent of the two states and the movement has to be carried out in sanitized buses with keeping proper social distancing. Only asymptomatic people would be allowed to travel and the second assessment of their health would be made upon their arrival in their home state. Based on the assessment they’ll be kept in-home or institutional quarantine. The MHA issued the order and said, “All states/UTs should designate nodal authorities and develop standard protocols for receiving and sending such stranded persons. The nodal authorities shall also register the stranded persons within their States/UTs. In case a group of stranded persons wishes to move between one State/UT and another State/UT, the sending and receiving states may consult each other and mutually agree to the movement by road.”
Such a decision has been taken when states have run out of sources to sustain migrant workers. The migrant laborers are the ones who have been badly hit by this pandemic, wherein they were unable to reach their homes. Also, there have been tourists who came to spend their holidays at a place but unfortunately got lockdown at that place. There are many stories where students couldn’t reach up to their homes. Such an effort was done to send students from Kota to various places which were objected by some states including Bihar by calling it “utter violation of national guidelines”. However, a full-fledged move has been decided by the government to allow students, migrant workers, and tourists to reach their homes keeping social distancing and other measures on priority.
