Student Approched to Chief Justice and Allahabad High Court for protecting fundamental rights of Migrant Labourers
मजदूरों के हालात से विचलित विद्यार्थी की मुख्य न्यायधीश से याचना
The Covid-19 crisis has forced India to finally acknowledge the fundamental rights of migrant.
For decades, millions of workers have moved from state to state and some to shores abroad, looking for opportunities and livelihoods ie article 21. The international scope of this pandemic has ensured that no section of people is left unaffected. The scale of the issue may vary from state to state or city to city, but none is left unscathed.
Millions of Indians trudging across hundreds of kilometres—some even losing their lives in the attempt—back home have brought forth the severity of the ruthless lockdown. Similarly, the economic impact of Indians being forced to return from abroad amidst collapsing economies and a widening health scare is expected to be felt in the coming months.Everyday many labours are dying due to road accident and with lack of transportation. One student from Mumbai requested CJI and CJ Of Allahabad High Court to direct government to assist labours to move their home.

Re:- Protecting fundamental rights which is guaranteed
by article 21 of Constitution of India in the matter Labourers death
I am student of B.A. 2nd year and doing preparation of UPSC Exam and residing aforesaid address and having permanent address at F 102, Grandeur, Sector 20, Kamothe, Navi Mumbai 410209 I beg to approach my lord to protect our fundamental rights.
Today while doing study I came to know through news about tragic incident took place in Auraiya district in Uttar Pradesh at around 3:30 am when the migrant workers were on their way to their native places in different states amid the coronavirus-induced lockdown. In said incident at least 24 migrant workers were killed and many were injured after a truck rammed into a DCM lorry they were travelling in, on Saturday morning.
The My Lord, due to Kovid 19 outbreak migrant workers are facing so many problems including losses of their job, not able get food for two times, therefore they started coming back to their native.
My Lord, its duty of State which is defined under article 12 to take care of each and every citizen of India. However, State, However, failed to perform their obligation which they supposed to do. Therefore I am approaching your Lordships for protecting fundamental rights ofmigrant workers.
My Lord, Government of India also issued guideline which says that, all states will be responsible to make all efforts for migrant workers to reach their destination. However, there is no speedy action from the respective states resulting such type of incident.
As per our Constitution the state (article 12 of constitution of India) is having responsibility to provide guarantees the right to live with dignity to people of India. The right to live with human dignity denies the life breach from the Directive Principles of the State Policy, particularly clauses (e) and (f) of Article 39 read with Article 47 of the Constitution of India. A paramount duty is cast on the States and its authorities to achieve an appropriate level of protection to human life and health which is a fundamental right guaranteed to the citizens under Article 21 read with Article 47 of the Constitution of India.
My Lord, still migrant workers are walking to their destination without food, facing so many problems including such type incident i.e. accident ( train accident, road accident).
My Lord, the tragedy of migrant labour keeps getting worse. Something needs to be done urgently.
My Lord, I therefore humbly, with my folded hand, requesting to please protect our fundamental rights which is guaranteed under article 21 of Constitution of India and take cognisance of it so right to live and right of life can be protected. .
