    Talk talk talk and do nothing. What about that huge crowd stranded right near the railway station since months ? There should be a limit to inefficiency. Ours is the only country in the world where there is a so called democratic elected government , but poor humans are suffering like animals.

    Before passing the information, please make it sure that no other orders will ne issued like sudden lockdown, train cancellation etc. Kindly consider Migrant worker’s are also humans and somebody is waiting for them in their village. The Central government need to play simillar politics as played in case of NRIs.
