Coronavirus : Migrant Workers Returning Home Showered with Chemical Solution in Uttar Pradesh

Lucknow : Lockdown is going on in the country these days. Meanwhile, in a shocking video that has surfaced online, migrant workers and their families from Uttar Pradesh were seen being forced to take a bath in alleged chemical solution on their arrival in Bareilly. According to reports, children complained of itching in their eyes while some women developed rashes after they were sprayed with the solution. On this, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) National President Mayawati, Samajwadi Party (SP) President Akhilesh Yadav and Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi have condemned this action of the administration. Now the three leaders have also demanded action on officials.

Mayawati has said that punishing the migrant laborers by spraying chemical solution in Bareilly in UP is cruelty and inhumanity, which is less to be condemned. The government should immediately pay attention. Asking questions, Akhilesh Yadav has said that some questions arose from the chemical spraying done for sanitization of workers, are there instructions from the World Health Organization for this? What is the treatment for chemical burns? What is the arrangement for changing the clothes of wet people? What is the alternative arrangement for soaked food items.

Now Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has appealed that we request the UP government that we are all fighting against this disaster, but please do not do such inhuman work.
