How is the lockdown in India impacting India’s over 400 million working poor? What has already been the terrifying consequences of the overnight lockdown on March 25th, without an adequate relief plan or measures taken to ensure daily wage laborers can afford to stay at home and practice social distancing?
APEX Express producer Preeti Mangala Shekar interviews two seasoned journalists, Anuradha Nagaraj, and Kunal Shankar, on how the lockdown is disproportionately impacting millions of “migrant” workers or guest workers in India.
