The novel coronavirus has resulted in the commencement of the national lockdown which has witnessed the closure of industries and companies. As a result, the migrant workers and labourers are trying their best to reach their respective homes and are lined up at railway stations and bus depots to board their means of travel and leave the state.
Raj Thackeray, the chief of Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) who has always put forward his views to agitate against the outsiders in the state has reiterated his anti-migrant issue yet again. He stated that there should be restrictions on the entry and exit of the outsiders in Maharashtra from now on and that this is the right time to register all the outsiders under the State Migration act and deny the entry of outsiders henceforth.
He further added that he has always said that the migrants will be the first to leave the state in case of any case of any crisis. He also said that the local youths of Maharashtra will witness job opportunities after the migrants desert the state.
The Chief Minister of the state, Uddhav Thackeray had called up a meeting which included representatives of all parties on Thursday to discuss the safety norms and the measures that can be taken to contain the outbreak of the COVID-19. As per reports, Raj Thackeray gave many instructions to the State Government regarding the anti-migrant issue.
