Prime Minister Narendra Modi praised Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Monday for his handling of migrant workers’ crisis as a result of the nationwide lockdown. This was during a video conference that the PM held with chief ministers of all states to discuss the situation on the ground and chalk out a plan of action.

A source told India Today that PM Modi mentioned several steps taken by the Rajasthan chief minister to counter the migrant crisis during the virtual interaction. The prime minister said that the Rajasthan government’s decision to increase the working hours of factory workers may be subject to criticism but is a step in the right direction.

Rajasthan has shown the way and other states should also follow this, the PM reportedly said during the video conference.

On April 11, the Rajasthan government issued a notification to extend the working hours of factory workers from 8 hours per day, six days a week to 12 hours per day, six days a week. The states of Gujarat, Punjab and Himachal Pradesh have also issued similar notifications.

The interaction on Monday was the third such virtual meeting chaired by the prime minister to discuss the novel coronavirus outbreak with chief ministers of all states.
