Reverse Migration: As Gurgaon announced lockdown of a week, many workers took their bag and decided to leave the city. People working in construction, textile and electronic industry have begun to migrate back to their hometowns.

On Sunday night, a 45-year old worker, Pankaj Kumar left for UP on his bike with a friend. He said, “I can’t risk being here. I can’t trust the city to help me if I fall ill or lose my job. I’ll be safe in my village and in case I do get infected, I have my people there to help me. Here I won’t even get a ground for my last rites if I die of Covid-19.”

Many industries claim that their working capacity has come down to 30% because of the restrictions. Also, the labor contractors are unable to provide human resources. As they say that all the workers have left for their hometown.

Deepak Sharma, a contactor said that he has been getting calls from agencies to provide them workers but he just cannot help. Weekend lockdown followed by a full week lockdown has changed everything. He also says that nobody wants to die without having their loved ones around them.

It is understandable why labors and other workers would not want to continue living in the city with a lockdown imposed. Their income will stop but expenses won’t. Being around the family even if without a source of income would provide them the much-needed comfort in these stressful times.
