With Bihar deciding to do away with mandatory quarantine for migrants returning to the state, the centres will be closed on June 15 after the last batch of registered migrants finish their period. While staying cooped up indoors could get pretty monotonous and difficult to pass time, a video of migrants dancing at a quarantine centre while maintaining social distance has gone viral on social media.
Tweeted by Uttar Pradesh police officer Rahul Srivastav, the video shows residents of Juafar Quarantine Centre in Siwan, Bihar, standing in five rows and trying to match the steps of an instructor who is seen dancing to the tunes of ‘Sandese Aate Hai’ from the 1997 war-action film Border.
Watch the video here:
