SC rejects plea for using resorts as shelters for migrants

Apr 03, 2020 14:46 IST

The Supreme Court Friday dismissed a plea seeking direction for using resorts and hotels for migrant workers walking back to their native places after being rendered jobless following 21-day lockdown. The plea had argued that shelter homes where migrants are kept allegedly lack adequate sanitation facilities. A bench comprising Justices L Nageswara Rao and Deepak Gupta, which heard the matter through video-conferencing, observed that the court cannot force the government to listen to all the ideas as people may come up with millions of ideas. Solicitor General Tushar Mehta told the court that state governments have already taken over buildings like schools and others to use them as shelter for migrants.
