In response to a second question related to migrants, on Tuesday, it said that during the lockdown in March, a large number of migrants had moved due to fake news.

To this, Minister of State for Home Nityanand Rai replied that due to fake news, there was a panic in the minds of people about the supply of food and other essential facilities, hence the stampede.
