Recently, Swara Bhaskar comes ahead to help stranded migrant labourers. After Sonu Sood, Swara Bhasker is the latest actor to help the migrants who are stuck due to the coronavirus lockdown.
As per the reports, Swara Bhaskar termed the migrant crisis as the most shameful incident. “At a time when lakhs of people are out on the streets, facing extreme hardship, I feel ashamed of sitting at home. This crisis has exposed the defects in our system”, the actor said.
Recently, Swara Bhasker started an initiative to rescue stranded workers and help them to reach home. She along with her team collected data of people wanting to go back. She further coordinated with the Delhi government to ensure that migrants get train tickets.
Till now, Swara has been able to send around 1,350 workers to their homes in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. Swara thanked AAP MLA Dilip Pandey for extending a helping hand.
Before this initiative, the actor had made arrangements of footwears for the migrants.
Sonu Sood has appeared as a major helper to rescue stranded migrants. He has fed over 45,000 migrants on the streets. Not only feeding, but the actor has also made arrangements for buses to get thousands of migrant workers to their homes. Moreover, he has launched a toll-free number through which migrants can easily ask for help.
The actor set up the toll-free number – 18001213711 – through which one can reach out to Sood’s team for help. He spoke about how he was receiving thousands and thousands of calls and messages every day, and that he and his family realised that he could very easily miss out on some people this way. He had earlier posted a video of his phone being flooded with calls and messages asking for help.
Even, Bhagat Singh Koshyari, Maharashtra’s Governor has appreciated the actor for his work. Many other politicians have invited him along with praisings.
