Migrant workers have gathered in large number in Bandra, Mumbai, demanding to go back home as the nationwide lockdown got extended till May 3.

The crowd has gathered at Ahle Sunnat Sunni Raza Jama Masjid near Bandra station as can be seen in this video.

Meanwhile, Mumbai Police has resorted to lathicharge to contain the crowd.

Maharashtra govt’s mess in coronavirus

Maharashtra has seen the highest number of coronavirus positive cases in the country with as many as 2,337 having reported positive as of 5 PM on April 14. The Maharashtra government, however, despite the PR stunts has not been able to contain the spread of the contagion. Moreover, there is a lot of evidence to suggest that the cases in Maharashtra may be under-reported, especially, due to the sheer incompetence of the Maharashtra government. While there are several things that the Maharashtra government has done right, for example, its outreach program to keep its people calm, there are several issues that have clearly come to the fore as well.
