A video of a toddler is making rounds on social media. The clip showing a baby trying to wake his demised mother lying on a railway station in Muzaffarpur has left people in tears.
As per the news reports, the name of the dead mother is Arbina Khatoon and she died of dehydration and hunger. This incident highlights the suffering migrants have faced due to the lockdown.
कई करोड़, कई कई करोड़ मौतें मर जाते हैं यह देख कर। दुख और तकलीफ़ के आगे भी कुछ और है जो अभी महसूस करना बाक़ी है। भगवान इन बच्चों का ख़याल रखें बस यही प्रार्थना है 🙏 https://t.co/DQNaJEEB1x

“This child doesn’t know that the bedsheet with which he is playing is the shroud of his mother who has gone into eternal sleep. This mother died of hunger and thirst after being on a train for four days. Who is responsible for these deaths on trains? Shouldn’t the opposition ask uncomfortable questions?” tweeted Yadav.
