Labour Ministry, Parliament, Death of Migrants during Lockdown

“No Data, No Compensation” says Labour Ministry in the Parliament over Death of Migrants during Lockdown

There is no data on migrant deaths so the "question does not arise" of compensation, the Union labour ministry said in parliament on Monday to a question on whether families of those who had lost their lives while trying to reach home in the coronavirus lockdown had been compensated. The government's written response in Lok Sabha on the first day of the monsoon session triggered anger and criticism from the opposition.
