India: The well-being of migrant workers is crucial to the economic development of the country.

Word For Peace   The images of the trampling home of migrant workers, some on trucks or bar-foot  walking, with women and children in their tow, have shaken consciousness in the country.  Tragic injuries and loss of  life incidents have evoked sympathy.  The photos of Operation Shramik Express by the government of Narendra Modi that has helped  more than four million migrants by bus and special train return home are nevertheless inspiring.    In India migrant labor is woven  into the economic fabric’s waft and weft.  It is a measure of national economic integration, as well as regional and rural-urban inequalities which  force immigrants from weaker countries to go metropolitan areas and other countries in search of livelihoods.  They contribute to the success and  empowerment of their home and destination states.    The sudden and unavoidable disease of the  coronavirus (Covid-19) threatens to disintegrate this tissue.  The fragility of the productive  potential of migrant workers is revealed.  The Blue Collar – the informal sector – of the forty million migrant  workers affected is the symbol of multidimensional deprivation, injustice and unsustainable demographic dividends.  Their mass migration from the host countries created an  unparalleled logistical nightmare and a humanistic and health security challenge.    This makes it more difficult for  the government to avoid the contagion.  The risk of labor  dislocation and atrophy is longer.  This also influenced economic activities declared  under Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan after the lockdown.    The opposition parties have both supported and used migrant  workers’ conundrum to condemn the Covid-19 policy of the government.  The stakeholders must recognize the seriousness of the  disaster and the enormity of the response it requires.  Modi, for his part, is driving India’s stupendous response to the crisis in a spirit of cooperative  and consultative Anti-Todayan federalism, with sympathy for the difficulties of the poor including the pravasi Shramiks (migrant workers).    Covid-19 has taken state and central governments into uncharted policy and intervention  territory, as a highly contagious and novel virus, without any vaccine or treatment.  Contrary to China, which militarily enforced the lock-down of a similar scale and scope, this is  a unique challenge for democracy such as India – a socially, federally, but economically weak country.  This is emblematic of the migration  crisis and calls for special measures.    States have the power to decide the extension and enforcement of  the lockdown and are responsible for providing relief for migrants in situ.  …
