Migrants are facing opposition in many places in the state
If the migrants, who are returning after facing thousands of difficulties, are facing opposition in many places in the state, then there is the fear behind the Corona infection. Lack of facilities at the village level is also increasing this fear.
As the lockdown began, such videos were floating in typical Garhwali on social media. In which women were instructing the migrants not to return. After this, the government gave the formula of social distancing regarding Corona.
Experts say that fear of the law was also resorted to following social distancing. By announcing the right to take action against those who disobeyed the village headmen in the state, the government gave vent to this fear.
In such a situation, there is also a fear of corona infection in villages. According to a village head, there is no proper system to check who is coming from outside and who is not corona. In such a situation, every visitor of the village is also watching with suspicion.
Government also increased fear
Lack of facilities in villages is also increasing this fear. According to Jot Singh Bisht, convenor of Panchayat Adhikar Manch, the difference between village and city should be understood. There is no separate arrangement for every person in the village to take a bath and other needs. The entire family uses a single bathhouse.
In such a situation, even if someone is quarantined, the whole family is at risk of infection. Secondly, there is not enough system to do quarantine at the community level in the village. In many places, the Panchayat houses are worth living by a few people. The condition of many schools is already bad.
The villages have also been affected by the government’s fears that about 25,000 migrants may be infected. It is believed that most of the migrants are infected and treatment facilities are not available even in the cities, then what about the villages.
Trouble for Gram Pradhan too
The government said that ten thousand rupees will be given from the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund. Similarly, the Minister of Parliamentary Affairs also said that money is being given to Gram Pradhan. The Gram Pradhan says that they did not receive any separate funds. In such a situation, the princes are now being targeted for the displeasure of the people of the village. People complain that Pradhan is not spending money.
