Lakhs of Migrant workers have been suffering in this pandemic, with many facing difficulties travelling back home to not having enough income to feed their families. About 35 lakh migrant workers have been infected. The government faced a lot of criticism by taking slow actions, which led to many migrants walk for miles and many even died of exhaustion. Many actors like Sonu Sood came to rescue these migrants and organised arrangements for their travel. The government has now resumed certain railway lines to ensure that these labourers reach back home safely.
