New Delhi: The Congress has alleged that no money was transferred to the accounts of migrant workers and they suffer a lot by walking down miles and miles.

The party vouchsafed through a documentary on Rahul Gandhi’s conversation with a group of migrants who were walking hundreds of kilometres from their worksite in Haryana to their village near Jhansi in  Uttar Pradesh.

Gandhi had interacted with a group of migrant labourers near the Sukhdev Vihar flyover here last Saturday.

In the documentary, the workers talked about their miseries and said they had to pay Rs 3000 for a train ticket in Haryana.

After his interaction, the former Congress president made arrangement for their travel to their native places and urged the government to make direct cash transfer of Rs 7,500 into the bank accounts of the workers.
