Rahul Gandhi questions why no data of death of migrants by Modi government

On Monday, Union Labour Minister Santosh Kumar Gangwar said that the government has no data about the death of migrants during the lockdown that began in March.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday tweeted a sharp retort to the government’s response in parliament on Monday about the data of migrants’ deaths during coronavirus lockdown.
“The Modi government does not know how many migrants died during lockdown… how many lost jobs. If you didn’t count… did nobody die? The sad part is that the government does not care about the loss of lives.

The world saw them dying… Modi government was unaware,” Rahul Gandhi tweeted in Hindi.
Several migrants were left jobless in March when the government declared one of the strictest lockdowns in the world to check the spread of coronavirus. Many of them died while on their way back to their villages from cities, on foot as the transport services remained shut.
