Chandan Siroj, a native of Jaunpur in Uttar Pradesh, said that during the last lockdown, he traveled in a truck to reach his home. "We were stuck for over one month here last year during the lockdown. The food was not an issue, but we were scared for our lives. We reached Jaunpur after traveling in a truck. "We came back around two months ago. On Monday, we told our employer that we are leaving for Jaunpur and requested him for some money. He only gave Rs 500 each to us. It's not going to be the same this year, nobody will help," Siroj said who works, along with his four friends from Jaunpur, at a factory in north Delhi's Anand Parbat area. Dharamvir Singh, 24, a native of Akbarpur near Lucknow, was looking for a bus to his hometown. He, however, had different reasons to go home.
