Mamata seeks one-time ₹10,000 assistance for each migrant

Jun 03, 2020 16:08 IST

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday appealed to the Centre to give one-time assistance of Rs 10,000 each to migrant workers amid the coronavirus crisis. In a tweet, she said financial aid should also be provided to those engaged in the unorganised sector to help them cope with the ongoing economic crisis arising out of the lockdown. Banerjee suggested that a portion of the Prime Minister's Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situations Fund or PM-CARES could be used for the purpose.
