Unprecedented traffic 'downs' MoCA website on eve of India's air rescue ops
Unprecedented internet traffic on the eve of one of the largest air rescue operations in the world brought 'down' the Union Ministry of Civil Aviation's website on Wednesday.
Accordingly, the ministry said that NIC is working on to fix the glitch caused. "Details regarding evacuation flights will be put up on the Air India website soon. Kindly check there directly. Our apologies for the inconvenience caused," the ministry tweeted
India will commence one of the world's largest air rescue operations from May 7, when Air India and its subsidiary Air India Express will start the first phase of the mission. As per the plans, these two airlines will operate 64-flights in seven days to bring back 14,800 stranded Indians from 12 countries.

While I am glad that Indians stranded in other countries are being brought back with the help of GoI, contrast this with the utter lack of planning to help the migrant labor return to their villages.

The poor do not expect anything different. Even the Supreme Court refuses to hold the govt responsible for the dire situation of these migrant labor and their families saying that they accept the govt's presentation that they are doing every thing possible for such people and there is no cause for alarm.

If the justices do not see destitution around them does it mean that therefore that this does not exist? Do we actually have to see scenes to believe that they are happening?

It is we, the educated, affluent citizens who should be holding the govt to account and making our shock and dismay known to the justices who have decided to trust the govt account rather than the reports of many credible reporters who have witnessed the desperate conditions of these migrants.
