Fleeing from their workplaces in cities like Delhi and Noida after the countrywide lockdown in the wake of coronavirus outbreak, migrant workers have been riding in milk tankers, cycle rickshaws and even walking hundreds of kilometre to reach their homes in Uttar Pradesh. Like Delhi and Noida, cases of migrants walking back home amid the lockdown have emerged from other states like Gujarat, West Bengal and Rajasthan.
