Home Ministry said – Rumors had caused a stampede among the migrants
In response to a question on Monday, the first day of the monsoon session, the government said that there is no data on how many migrant laborers were killed in accidents while returning home in lockdown. In response to a second question related to the migrants itself, on Tuesday, during the lockdown in March, there was a large number of migrants due to fake news.
Trinamool Congress MP Mala Roy asked in writing in the Lok Sabha what steps the government took to protect the migrants before the lockdown was announced on March 25 and why thousands of laborers were forced to return home. On this, Minister of State for Home Nityanand Rai replied that due to fake news, there was a panic in the minds of people about the supply of food and other essential facilities, hence the stampede.
