The reports that are appearing in the newspapers and TV channels about the pitiable plight of the migrant workers are heart rendering. In  the present Covid situation they do not have any work. In many places, they are not even getting food. There are no transport or train to take them to their states and they walk with family including small children hundreds of kilometres. Many die on the way. Reports have come about many people crushed under the train, while they were sleeping on the tracks due to exhaustion.

Since this is an   issue connected with many states, it is the prime responsibility of the Centre to make suitable arrangements for their home journey in co-ordination with the state governments. Food, medicines etc should be ensured in the mean time.
