Senior leader and Former Finance and External Affairs Minister Yashwant Sinha convened an emergency meeting of Rashtra Manch to discuss the abdication of leadership by the Modi Government in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic. The meeting began with an urgent call for defining the Rights of Migrants and Labourers in the face of the lockdown enforced by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The leaders questioned the cruel model of Governance that has led to macabre death of migrant labourers in Aurangabad and the countless stories of lakhs of poor citizens walking with women and children without cash, food, water, and sense of security. This deadly walk of the migrants and labourers is a betrayal of responsibility by the Prime Minister and the Government, the leaders said. Yashwant Sinha, Manish Tewari, Majeed Memon, Pavan Varma, Prof. Arun Kumar, Ravinder Manchanda, and Ghanshyam Tiwari together agreed to issue an open call from the Rashtra Manch to the Narendara Modi Government to urgently define the rights of migrants and labourers under the lockdown situation. This will check the on-going man-made game of discrimination and death that the migrants and the labourers face. Rashtra Manch is ready to work together with leaders across the country to come up with the minimum guarantee that the Government of India must give to migrants and labourers as their right in the nationwide lockdown.
