Bhopal,22 May(HS): Thanks to the efforts of the state and Union governments, migrant workers stranded elsewhere across the country have started returning to Madhya Pradesh.
The joy of returning to the native places was quite evident on their faces although most of them underwent a variety of problems during the nationwide lockdown period.
A special train reached Tikamgarh with migrant labourers. Among them was one Ramlal Ahirwar of Hata Tehsil in Damoh district. As soon as he got off the train, his eyes were saying a lot.
On Friday, he told that he was leading life in Gurgaon by working as a labourer. He lost his job during the lockdown and it became difficult even to manage two meals a day.
Ramlal said that homecoming happened by train any they paid no money while they were served with the food and water on the way.
Trapped in Dadri, Haryana, Maniklal Patel reached his home district Chhatarpur by Shramik Express train. It was said that he had given up hope of coming back, but due to the warmth and efforts of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan, he has been able to return home.
