कुछ दिन पहले, इन मजदूर भाई-बहनों से भेंट हुई जो हरियाणा से सैकड़ों किमी दूर यूपी के झांसी में अपने गाँव पैदल ही जा रहे थे। आज सुबह 9 बजे इनके धैर्य, दृढ़ संकल्प और आत्मनिर्भरता की अविश्वसनीय कहानी मेरे YouTube चैनल पर देखिए। https://t.co/3FJjMvwxow pic.twitter.com/2OBs0WzcuG

The over 17 minutes video, which was shared on Saturday, has Gandhi narrating the story of the migrants and how he met them. The workers shared their ordeal with him and tell him how they got very short notice before the lockdown to make adequate arrangements to go home.
The crisis of migrant workers is one of the biggest fallouts of the lockdown. Hundreds of workers across the country were left stranded without any means of transport after the announcement of the lockdown in March by prime minister Narendra Modi. Recently in a press conference Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had criticized the opposition saying that their interaction with workers ‘was a drama’.
