MAN MADE HIS PREGNANT WIFE SIT ON A WODDEN SLAB CART TO MARCH HIS HOME
A migrant worker Ramu made a cart of a wooden slab and fitted wheels at the bottom of the slab and made a hand made cart. He is a native of Madhypradesh . This migrant worker was working in Hyderabad after losing his job in lockdown period he decided to march on foot towards his house in Madhyapradesh . His village is located at Balaghat of Mdhyapradesh . He made this cart so that his pregnant wife could sit on the wooden cart who is unable to walk down due to her pregnancy along with his little daughter and Ramu can pull the cart and thus he covered the distance of nearly 700 km from Hyderabad to Balaghat in Mdhyapradesh. Since no mode of transport was available due to lockdown walking was only option left with him. But he made this herculean job a success and reached his house covering this 700 km on foot pulling the cart on which his pregnant wife and daughter were sitting all the way . Ramu told that initially he and his pregnant wife both were walking and he was keeping his daughter in his lap. But for Dhanwanti his wife it was not possible to walk down this distance fully. And they were also without food for the whole day. So on the way he managed to arrange for a wooden slab and fitted small wheels in that and prepared a temporary cart type object. But while he entered in Maharashtra from Telengana the police force headed by SDO Shri Nitish Bhargabh noticed them in a pitiable condition. The force arranged for food and gave them. SDO Shri Nitish gave a pair of shoes to his small daughter. He stated that after physical check up of this distressed family a vehicle has been arranged for this poor family to drop them at their house in Madhyapradesh. Finally on Tuesday Ramu and his family reached to their village. Now for the time being they have to be in quarantine for 14 days. Ramu’s video in social media got viral. In an another video it is being seen that a kid is sleeping on a moving wheeled suitcase due to physical exertion . Over the Agra high way in this manner a lady is carrying her babies. She was pulling her sleeping baby on the wheeled suitcase to cover the distance of 800 km from Punjab to Jhnasi. In a different video in social media it is seen that along with the single bull a migrant laborer youth is pulling the bullock cart . On the cart his younger brother and mother in law were sitting. In this manner they reached to Patharmundla from Maao of Indore covering 25 km stretch. In lockdown majority of migrant workers lost their jobs . On the other hand they even to not get full tummy food. For that reason other state’s migrant workers are desperate to be back their homes. In between 16 laborers are made into pieces unfortunately by a train on the railway track in course of getting back to their homes . On different accidents many lost their valuable lives. Up till now Many ladies had to give birth on open roads while they were on foot towards their homes. Indian government made arrangements of special trains to get back the migrants to their native places . Hope this will give bit of relief to the destitut migrant laborers.
