Gumla: BJP’s Lohardaga MP and former Union minister Sudarshan Bhagat recently wrote a letter to Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot urging him to send back the body of one Somra Oraon, a migrant who hailed from Gumla district and died in Alwar owing to “lack of treatment”. In another letter, Bhagat requested the Telangana government to arrange for the return of hundreds of migrants stranded in Malkajgiri district.
Bhagat’s letter to Gehlot read, “Somra Oraon, a migrant worker of Gumla, died in Alwar district due to lack of treatment. It is the moral responsibility of your government to send his body and order an inquiry into his death besides providing support to his family.”
In his letter to Telangana CM K Chandrashekhar Rao, Bhagat said several workers from his constituency were being ill-treated by the Malkajgiri district administration. “Migrant workers in Midchal, an industrial hub in Malkajgiri, are rendered jobless due to the lockdown. They informed me over the phone that they are facing several problems and want to return home. I request you to initiate an inquiry into the ill-treatment meted out to them and arrange for their journey back home.”
