By @salmanmushir • Issue #26 • View online
Happy Monday, folks! As all of you must know this already, the lockdown has been extended by 2 weeks with effect from today, May 4. Sometimes I wonder, do all the major announcements and coronavirus news come out on the weekend when this newsletter is on a break? 🤔 Well, let’s go with ‘no’, as we don’t need another conspiracy like that.
Okay, so there’s one good news from the weekend regarding COVID-19 cases globally, which is - over one million people have now recovered from Covid-19 worldwide. Isn’t that good to know :)
Let’s get you to the news today - all about lockdown.

Btw, as I was researching the news today, this is what my feed looked like ..

I found that there have been 3 different information making news regarding railway ticket fare for migrant workers returning to their hometowns. I found it hard to decipher right information here, so just sharing with you all of it. Here they are:
  1. Railway Guidelines Say Trains For Migrant Workers Will Run Only If States Collect Ticket Fare
  2. Congress will pay: Sonia Gandhi attacks Centre over migrants’ train fare
  3. Railways paying 85%, state govt 15% fare for migrant workers: BJP
