Jharkhand's migrants begin returning home
For Sanjay Choudhary, last year's events have started repeating themselves - huddling with his friends to hear of rising Covid-19 cases, night curfews and weekend curbs. Fearful of another lockdown, the construction worker and 11 of his associates have returned to Jharkhand after just a few months in Bhopal.
Till March 2020, Choudhary had earned Rs 500 a day at a construction site in Nagpur. However, after the lockdown was announced, he was left with no food and no electricity, and even the contractor who had engaged him went missing.
