new Delhi. Congress President Sonia Gandhi has said that the lack of getting razi roti due to lockdown has seen millions of migrant workers go hungry and walk barefoot hundreds of kilometers to their home and this is not taking the name of the process In any case, the government should provide relief to the poor by opening the lock of the treasury.
In a video message released here on Thursday, Sonia Gandhi said that all her colleagues as well as economists, sociologists and pioneers of society have repeatedly urged the government to relieve these victims and heal their wounds and said It is said that the workers, farmers, entrepreneurs and small shopkeepers are all suffering from the lockdown and they should be helped but the Central Government has refused to understand and pay attention to it and has deepened their wounds.
He said that when the government did not accept this advice, the Congress decided to launch a campaign on social media to raise the voice of this section and pressurize the government. He said, “The Central Government is again requested to open the treasure lock and provide relief to the needy. Make direct cash payment of Rs 7,500 per month to each family for six months and give them Rs 10,000 immediately. ”
The Congress President said that his priority is to reduce the pain of the laborers, so the government should arrange for safe and free travel to the laborers and bring them home. They should be given ration and after reaching village they should be given 200 days work under MNREGA so that these poor can get employment in their village itself. Similarly, instead of lending to small and small scale industries, they should be given financial help so that the jobs of the people remain.
Sonia Gandhi said that the employment of crores of people has been lost due to the lockdown, millions of businesses have been destroyed, factories are closed, the farmer has to stumble at a rate to sell the crop. The whole country suffered, but perhaps the government did not even know it.
