Kozhikode: Actor and social worker Joy Mathew stated that the promises made by state and central governments to expatriates have been unrealistic and empty. He said that since the number of COVID-19 cases and death toll have been on the rise in Gulf countries, the government should not turn their back to them. Joy Mathew made his statement through his Facebook page.
He said that Keralites go to foreign countries as they cannot take care of their livelihoods in their home state. He added that since we are not hesitant to help even those who do not deserve it, we should not turn our backs to the expatriates.
He also wrote that Keralites who are struggling for their lives on foreign soil, should at least be given proper compensation before someone steals that money.
