P Chidambaram – Former Union Finance Minister:
- PM-CARES has allocated Rs 1000 crore for migrant workers.
- Please don’t make the common mistake.
- The money will not be given to the migrant workers but to the State governments to meet the expenses of travel, accommodation, medicine and food for the migrant workers.
- But nothing will go to the hands of the migrant workers.
- Let’s take a migrant worker who has crossed all hurdles and returned to his village.
- There are no jobs in the village. He has no work and no income.
- How will he survive and support his family?
