Watch: Migrant workers continue journey on foot to reach their homes, say 'we are jobless' amid coronavirus lockdown

Despite the coronavirus lockdown in the country, migrant workers from various places in Delhi and Harayana on Saturday continued their journey towards Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and other states on foot.

Even if the country has gone under the lockdown, these migrant workers intend to reach their homes in Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal, Rajasthan and other neighbouring states.

Many people leave their native places and come to Delhi in search of a job. Since the national capital is under the lockdown, they say they don’t have jobs and want to return to their homes. “I am coming from Bahadurgarh (Haryana)&have to go to Etawah (358.7 km away). My company is closed, what option do I have if not to return?” Ashish, a migrant worker, told the news agency.

Hundreds of migrant workers were waiting for buses in Ghaziabad’s Lal Kua. Pictures of buses with people even sitting atop also surfaced. A group of rickshaw pullers were turned back by Delhi Police from Akshardham flyover today. “I was going to West Bengal. Police have turned us back, they say we’ll be sent on a bus,” rickshaw puller Paanchu Mandal said. “We are not getting any work here, don’t get passengers anymore,” he added.

Here are some videos:
