Ludhiana, May 14
Hundreds of migrants protested against the state government here on Thursday for allegedly not making arrangements to send them to their home state Bihar.
They said they had lost jobs because of the lockdown and, as a result, it was difficult to make ends meet here.
Some migrants blamed the police for beating them up. One of the workers Arun said, “We were protesting peacefully, but the police lathicharged us.”
Another worker Moseen, whose foot was injured in the lathicharge, said: “We appeal to the state government to send us to Bihar soon.”
The police, however, denied the allegation. “The police did not lathicharge the protesters. We are investigating the matter to know who misguided the migrants to protest,” said Inspector Varunjit Singh, SHO, Moti Nagar police station.
On Wednesday, migrants protested outside the DC office here. They demanded the administration must make arrangements to send them back home.
