16 people migrated from Bastat, Boya, Gondai, Kulandrigadi villages of Jharkhand State and they are working as contract labours under a contractor for APSPDCL work. They fit the transformers at agricultural wells . They are staying at Ipperu Village of Kuderu Mandal, Anantapur District. In lockdown situation of Covid-19 the contractor stopped the work and the migrants have no work no pay from 22nd March, 2020. Hence, A.F. Ecology Center distributed the ration to the migrants on 13.04.2020 by Peddakka- GSMS Conenor, Yerrappa-GSMS Co-Convenor of Ipperu Village. Ramanjaneyulu-STO , Nanji Reddy-Mandal Team Leader, Kuderu and Sujatha from PME wing and 5 members of villagers from Ipperu were participated in the programme. An awareness programme on Covid-19 was conducted for migrants.
We are thinking that, migrants need further support linking with Village Secretary, Anganvadi worker and Mandal Revenue Authorities.
