Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Monday hit out at Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath over his claim that the migrant workers and labourers were “ill-treated” in Maharashtra. Refuting Adityanath’s claims, Raut said that the migrants praised Thackeray while leaving the state. 

While speaking to reporters, Raut said that he will send video clips of migrants hailing Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to Yogi Adityanath. “Yogi Adityanath has said that migrants were treated poorly. We will send him video clips of migrant workers hailing Uddhav Thackeray while leaving for their homes,” the Shiv Sena MP said. 

The migrant workers and labourers were stranded in various parts of Maharashtra for nearly two months, without work and money due to the lockdown amid the coronavirus outbreak. 

“Adityanath shouldn’t make such claims. Rather, he should focus on providing food and water to migrant workers who have returned home,” Raut said. 

Earlier on Sunday, in a webinar, the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister said that other states will have to seek permission to hire workers from UP as some states had treated them badly. 

Reacting to this, Raut said that Adityanath should not forget that migrant workers came to Maharashtra in search of jobs. 

“We accepted them and let them work here. We have taken care of these people not just in the last one and a half months but they have been working here for years. We all were living together in harmony,” the Shiv Sena leader said. 

Adityanath has asked officials to set up a migrant commission which would work on skill mapping and employment of migrant workers but will also fix their wages and come up with social security schemes including insurance for the workers.
