When the #SupemeCourt took cognizance of a letter written by Lok Sabha MP, it seemed like a ray of hope.
..However, the hope was short lived, as the Court dismissed the petition on April 13, without giving any reasons.
This petition sought directions to the Central and state governments to ensure payments of wages/minimum wages to all the migrant workers.
“If they are being provided meals, then why do they need money for meals?” - SC
On April 21, the #SupremeCourt disposed of the matter after recording the statement of the SG that the aspects highlighted in the petition will be looked into and if necessary, the government will issue requisite directions
“We would not like to interfere with the day to day functioning of the Govt in this regard, but, at the same time, we should ensure that the situation does not go from very bad to worst. In such circumstances, the judiciary will have to intervene.”
