A heartbreaking video of a man was seen carrying his ailing son on his shoulders while walking to his home in Madhya Pradesh on foot amid the nationwide coronavirus lockdown. The father started walking from Punjab amid the national lockdown and his son was lying in a makeshift cot and can be seen wearing a mask.
The video was captured when the man identified as Rajkumar and his family reached Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh on the way to their village.
“?This video is of UP’s Kanpur. The man is from the MP. He walked 900 KMs from Punjab carrying injured son on shoulders
?Governments have failed miserably. Ministers/Babus need to be held accountable. Those being sugar-coated about it are being dishonest ?,” a Twitter user posted.
