Prime Time With Ravish Kumar - September 15, 2020: There is no data on migrant deaths so the "question does not arise" of compensation, the Union labour ministry said in parliament on Monday to a question on whether families of those who had lost their lives while trying to reach home in the coronavirus lockdown had been compensated. The government's written response in Lok Sabha on the first day of the monsoon session triggered anger and criticism from the opposition. The ministry was also asked whether the government was aware that a number of migrant workers lost their lives during return to the hometown and the details if any. The Government was also asked about the economic assistance or compensation given to such families. In his written response, Union labour minister Santosh Kumar Gangwar said, "No such data is maintained. Question does not arise in view of the above". (Audio in Hindi)
