Bangalore. During the lockdown due to Corona virus last year, many such stories related to migrant laborers came in front of us, which made our eyes moist. In fact, the lockdown had brought all the activities in the cities to a standstill and that is why the laborers who came to the cities to earn from the remote villages were forced to migrate to their homes.
You will remember how a girl took her father on a bicycle and traveled 1200 km from Gurugram to Darbhanga in Bihar. Now in the second wave of Corona, a similar incident has come to the fore, where a laborer’s father measured a distance of 300 km from a bicycle for his son’s medicine.

He said, ‘I asked here for my son’s medicines, but this medicine was not found anywhere. He cannot stop taking medicine even for a day. I went to Bangalore and it took me three days. ‘ Let us tell you that the lockdown is currently in Karnataka till June 7.
