P Chidambaram – Former Union Finance Minister:
- Congress was the first to raise the issue of migrant workers locked down without a job or money or grain.
- Congress was the first to draw attention to the fact that, despite trains and buses, thousands of migrant workers are trekking back home. No one paid heed to our warning.
- Now, governments are shedding crocodile tears for the migrant workers who were killed by a train. The tragedy on our highways and railway tracks is visible every day to all, except the governments.
