Yamunanagar, May 23

Migrant labourers created a ruckus in a shelter home set up at the Government Senior Secondary School in Radaur today. They demanded that they be sent back to their hometowns.

They raised slogans against the governments of Haryana and Bihar. They threatened to proceed on fast if they were not sent back soon.

After getting information, Radaur DSP Kushal Pal Rana and SHO Rishi Kumar reached the spot. They tried to persuade the migrants, but they continued the protest.

Migrants Ramlakhan and Jai Ram said they were kept at a shelter home near Yamunanagar for 15 days and then shifted to Radaur a few days later.

“I visited the shelter home and pacified the protesters. I told them that arrangements were being made to send them home,” Rana said.
