Lift or extend lockdown, it’s a difficult situation for us, Jharkhand CM Soren tells PM Modi


RANCHI: CM Hemant soren stated,”The Jharkhand government is facing a dilemma over the coronavirus lockdown as extending as it would lead to financial distress and lifting it could activate an inrush of migrants into the state.”
During an interaction with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he said that his government is expecting over 5 lakh migrant labourers to return to their villages once the lockdown is lifted, increasing the possibility of the spread of the deadly virus.

But continuing with the lockdown will further dry up the state’s revenue, he further added.Soren requested Modi to increase the daily wage under rural job scheme MGNREGA to Rs 300.
