    Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday announced a six-day Covid-19 lockdown from 10pm on April 19 till 5am on April 26 and urged migrant workers to not leave the national capital during this period.

    Kejriwal pointed out that its duration being only six days, the present lockdown was a relatively “short” one, and promised that the government will “take care” of the migrant workers through this crisis.

    He also assured that the Delhi government will be working hard to ensure adequate medical facilities in the national capital and remained hopeful that the government won’t need to extend the current lockdown any further.

    ‘I appeal to you with folded hands. It’s a small lockdown, only for six days. Don’t leave Delhi and go. I am very hopeful and that we won’t need to further extend the lockdown. The government will take care of you,” news agency ANI quoted Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal as saying.

    Lockdown-like measures introduced by several state governments usually spell a loss of livelihood for many migrant workers working in India’s major cities. These migrant workers, who form an essential part of any city’s economy, faced difficulties when the Centre imposed its first lockdown in 2020 following the first wave of Covid-19.

    Most of them were unable to find transport and had to walk home in desperation and many died due to exertion and lack of food.
