NEW DELHI: Witnessing chaos at railway stations and bus depots, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has directed the States and the Union Territories (UTs) to ensure proactive coordination with railways and transport department as well as dispel rumours and give clarity on train and bus departures.

In a communication to all the States and the UTs on Monday through an official order, Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla issued the instructions to all Chief Secretaries and UT administration noting that fear of novel coronavirus or COVID-19 infection and apprehension of loss of livelihood are the main driving factors for the movement of stranded workers towards their homes. In order to mitigate the distress of migrant workers, the communication stresses on a number of measures that need to be taken by the State governments, pro-actively in coordination with the Centre.
