'Seal borders': Centre's strict directives to states on migrant exodus

Mar 29, 2020 16:03 IST

After chaotic scenes were witnessed in various parts of the country, particularly the national capital where thousands of workers breached the lockdown on Saturday, the Centre has directed all states to seal borders and not allow movement of people. In a notification released by the Press Information Bureau, the govt said, states have been told to ensure timely payment of wages to workers at their place of work during the period of lockdown, without any cuts. The directive added that house rent should not be demanded from the labourers for this period and action should be taken against those who ask labourers or students to vacate.
