News of just 3 pc of returning migrants testing +ve relieving: Mayawati

Lucknow: Asserting that blaming the migrant workers for the rise in coronavirus is wrong, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati on Thursday demanded that they be returned to their homes soon.
In a tweet, Ms Mayawati said that the news of just 3 per cent of migrant workers who are returning homes testing positive for the novel coronavirus is relieving, especially when efforts are being done to blame them for the rise in infection.
Due to these apprehensions, there has been a delay in their return, she added.
Further, Ms Mayawati said, “At a time when there is a talk of providing government assistance, such as economic package, etc, to open industries which have been closed due to the lockdown, the news of the closure of a major bicycle factory in UP’s Ghaziabad due to lack of money raises concerns. It will be better if the government pays attention immediately.”
