Thane, Apr 14 (PTI) Hundreds of migrant workers took

to the streets of Mumbra town in Maharashtra''s Thane district

on Tuesday, demanding that they be sent to their hometowns in

light of the COVID-19 lockdown, which has rendered them

jobless.

Workers, mostly from Jharkhand, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh,

and Uttar Pradesh, who live in rented accommodations, claimed

that houseowners were demanding rent from them and they were

unable to procure essentials.

Agitated workers took to the streets and demanded

that the state government arrange for transportation to their

hometowns amid the COVID-19 lockdown, which has now been

extended till May 3.

Senior inspector Khanya Thorat of the Mumbra police

station pacified the crowd and convinced them to return to

their living quarters after a couple of hours.

The official also urged house owners to postpone rent

collection for a couple of months, as workers were currently

jobless because of the lockdown. PTI COR
