The video shows migrant labourers fighting with each other for the food packets. The government has arranged special trains for labourers so that they can reach home safely. Amid the arrangements being made for them, such pictures surface.
Earlier this month, a similar incident took place at the state's Satna railway station. Dramatic videos from the platform showed migrant workers, armed with belts, abuse and violently fight each other inside a train over food.
