Mumbai: The Covid-19 induced lockdown has placed many a poverty stricken people in dire straits. The lockdown has literally thrown them out of their jobs and left them penniless and struggling to move to their homeland.
At this scenario, Hello Mumbai News Team meets BMC Corporator Vinod Mishra, Ward No. 43 for his views and comments.
Interacting with Hello Mumbai News, Vinod Mishra alleges that the Maharashtra State Government has collosally failed in living up to their promises to provide assistance to the poverty stricken people.
He added that the countrywide lockdown has heavily impacted the migrants and the poorest of the country. Daily visuals of migrants losing their lives owing to shortage of facilities clearly reminds the magnitude of their sufferings.
Vinod further blames the Maharashtra State Government for the present scenario in the state. Government is making a mockery of the labourers with fake assurances of providing ration against Aadhar Card whereas many states have already done that. Even the food provided was of substandard quality which is why the labourers were forced to walk to their respective villages” says Mishra.
He further added that there is no proper Hospital facilities, ambulance services, and there is shortage of ventilators and local people are the once who are paying the price by loosing their lives.
It is intensely horrifying to see fatalities everyday due to the unorganized working style of the Government as well as the BMC.
Continuing with the conversation Vinod Mishra elaborated on the initiatives taken by him to help the underprivileged. He said a special team is ready to undertake tasks such as to fill the forms of people who are unable to do so, making arrangements for the them for getting them hospitalized.
About 50 migrants reached Rajasthan, approximately 500 migrants reach Uttar Pradesh from his ward.
He is also doing an enormous work by serving 1200 people everyday with cooked food from his community kitchen. He also runs a call center ever ready to receive calls of the people who require ration. As of now around 7500 people have been benefitted from his call center and have received ration.
