Mumbai: The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has transformed civic run recreational complex to temporary shelter homes for the migrant and daily wage workers stuck in the city. Most of the labourers are daily wage workers at construction sites in the city.
With projects getting stalled amid the sudden announcement of the 21-day lockdown, most of them are headed back to their hometowns. In order to dissuade them from leaving, the civic body has set up temporary shelter facilities.
The civic run Shahaji Raje (Andheri) sports complex situated beside Azad Nagar metro station in the suburbs has been made a temporary shelter of daily wage workers living in the city.
