The briefing of the webinar was done by Mr. Albadar Khan. He introduced the situation about how the labours are travelling back to their homes/villages through cycles, buses, trucks and even on foot, due to the lack of earning opportunities in the pandemic/lockdown situation.  


Mr.Om Prakash Singh, a member of National working committee of AIITUC, discussed:- 


         - How the labours were overlooked in the beginning of the pandemic and how that got them into the condition of travelling with their families and little children on foot.
        -He insisted that government needs to immediately transfer money in their accounts             rather then formulating long/complicated strategies that would take months to reach all the labours 
      -According to EPF, whole labours force won’t receive the funds. 
     -Governments need to work together and raise higher funds 
     -Medical check ups ,safe travels and revival packages. 
     -Minimum wages and timings 

 Some of Mr. Albadar Khan’s points:-
