Fake news led to mass lockdown migration: Govt

The State

New Delhi, September 15

A day after telling Parliament it had no data on migrant deaths and so the question of compensation for loss of lives did not arise, the government again shocked the Lok Sabha today by blaming fake news for mass migration during the Covid clampdown.

The Home Ministry, in a reply to a question by TMC’s Mala Roy, said, “The migration of a large number of workers was triggered by panic created due to fake news on lockdown duration.”

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi attacked the government over lack of data on migrant deaths. “If you have not counted, have the deaths not happened? Only the Modi government is not aware of deaths,” he tweeted. — TNS
