Poverty crisis arises due to lack of coordination between Center and states: Medha Patkar

Pune. Social activist Medha Patkar has said that due to lack of coordination between the central and state governments, the migrant crisis arose during the Corona virus lockdown in the country. Patkar said during a conversation with reporters in Pune district of Maharashtra on Tuesday that the central government did not make necessary arrangements for food and transport for the migrant laborers. Patkar said that the Uddhav Thackeray-led government of Maharashtra arranged state transport buses, which helped migrant workers to their homes. 


He said, I think the lack of coordination between the central and state governments created the migrant crisis. Now, the government should make arrangements for free transportation for migrant laborers while removing their problems. He demanded that migrant laborers be provided employment and free food at their native places. 10 thousand rupees should be given to the poor and needy people across the country. She said that she had already protested against changes in labor laws in the wake of the Kovid-19 crisis.
