Deaths of Migrant workers in the accident are Heart Wrenching and Collective Failure” Rizwanur Rahman Khan.
Mumbai, 8th May, 2020.
Deaths of 16 Migrant Workers in an Accident is heart wrenching and highly condemnable. It is the collective failure of our governments; both at the center and in the state, to address the issue of Migrant Workers stranded in the country due to Lockdown, said Rizwanur Rahman Khan, President of Jamaat e Islami Hind, Maharashtra. He said, “Many decisions are stuck between the Center and State government resulting in an ineffective policy for the poor workers.”
He echoed the demand by Academicians to declare the issue of Migrant Workers as “The National Emergency”. On the Line of Vande Bharat mission, for Indian stranded abroad, our Government should come up with a concrete plan for the travel of migrant workers stranded in different parts of India.
He welcomes the announcement of Rs.5 lakhs compensation by the Maharashtra Government but demanded Rs.20 Lakhs compensation from the Railway Ministry of India.
He also brought a point of communication gap between the State Government the workers. He said that Government should make it sure that it’s announcement and decisions must reach these workers. HE also added that Government should provide facilities of Covid19 Testing in the shelter homes only.
He directed the members and workers of Jamaat e Islami Hind in Aurangabad and Jalna to make it sure that all the government and other helps reach the victims of the accident. He said, “Our works in Aurangabad and other parts of the state should provide all the necessary relief to the Migrant Workers and those affected by the Lockdown.” He also declare that Jamaat e Islami Hind is always ready to co operate with the government authorities in this time of crisis.
