The government - at the centre and in states - could have done a lot more to take of care of migrant workers who have had a gruesome time because of the nationwide COVID-19 lockdown, Amitabh Kant, the CEO of the NITI Aayog said on Friday.

"This was the responsibility of the state governments to ensure that the workers were well taken care of. In a vast country like India, federal government has a limited role. This was a challenge where I think we could have done a much, much better job of taking care of every single worker at the state, local, district level," Mr Kant said.
