Amidst coronavirus that is causing one case after another, India is inching closer to 1000 cases, 900 are already on board. The chaos intensified on Saturday, yesterday when migrants flocked many bus depots of Delhi to go back to their homes. Some started going to their homes on foot.
A tweet has surfaced from Arvind Kejriwal stating that, “Migrants should stay back home, there is no food shortage for them. There are living arrangements for them, they will not be deprived of rooms and food. They also need to know that if they travel back to their homes they might carry the virus with them and can potentially infect many healthy people. I request them to refrain from going and stay out where they are.”
Here’s a tweet where Arvind Kejriwal requested migrants to not go home:
