ANI Tweet:

“Today at 4 pm, around 1500 people gathered at Bandra railway station premises. Many of them were migrant labourers. They were unhappy with the extension of the lockdown and wanted to go back to their homes. They had placed their demand before administration,” said Mumbai police PRO DCP Pranaya Ashok.

“Local Police officials went to the spot, talked to them and tried to convince them. During this, a section of the crowd turned violent so light force had to be used to bring them under control. The crowd was dispersed. Police are deployed there. The situation is normal and peaceful,” he added.

Maharashtra Tourism Minister Aaditya Thackeray also lashed out at the centre and said that the incident was a result of PM Modi government’s improper planning. “The current situation at Bandra Station, now dispersed or even the rioting in Surat is a result of the Union Govt not being able to take a call on arranging a way back home for migrant labour. They don’t want food or shelter, they want to go back home,” he tweeted.
