The Rajasthan High Court today issued notice to the State Government in a plea seeking concrete steps for the welfare of the daily wage workers and labourers moving across the territorial borders of Rajasthan, during the national lockdown in place to curb the spread of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The Division Bench comprising of Justice G R Moolchandani and Justice Narendra Singh Dhaddha observed that there were several reports indicating that the Government has taken steps to take care of such migrant workers.

All the same, such migrants were obviously under fear and panic, which is unwarranted, the Court noted.Therefore, it has directed the State to file an affidavit on the present status on the issue.
