The last week of June 2020 saw more and more migrant workers return to their villages from red zone cities. They were all assigned to quarantine centres for 14 days. Many wouldn’t abide, and were found roaming in their villages.
The aagewan, Sangitaben, got in touch with the ASHA worker of her village. Fights broke out when Sangitaben and Asha ben tried to intervene and ask the quarantined workers to stay put at the centre. Sangitaben, out of her wits, had to ask the village chief to intervene, which worked. The quarantined workers only agreed to stay at the quarantine centre when urged by the chief.
