Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday interacted with migrant labourers who were walking on Sukhdev Vihar flyover, here, to return to their home states.
Taking to micro-blogging site Twitter, the Congress Party shared pictures of Mr Gandhi's interaction with the migrant labourers, and said,"The pain of the people can only be understood by leaders who care. Here are a few glimpses of Shri @RahulGandhi interacting with migrant labourers in Delhi”.
Mr Gandhi discussed the problems being faced by them, who were stranded in Delhi due to the Covid-19 lockdown.
The party has claimed that the police detained the labourers later in preventive custody saying they have ‘direction from top to do so’.
The party volunteers later arranged vehicles for migrants to take them back to their home states.
