    IMHO, now these guys came to know that such a long forced internal lockdown, in a country like ours, was a sham!
    The infection is supposedly spreading uncontrolled now!
    But, a very huge irreparable damage on the socioeconomic front has already happened!!
    Now the effects of migrants in the hinterland spreading the virus will have to be watched closely!
    Post CORONA socioeconomic effects will be much more painful and prolonged than expected!!

    All this because of gulf returnees. Govt done a big mistake of airlifting.

    We cannot blame people came from other states. They are residents of India. They pay tax. They are part of developing India. They use their skills which they got due to free education policy of India, in developing their mother country. They look after their aged parents. So Govt has a responsibility to take care of them.
