Minister Muraleedharan visits Kuwait; Indians in refugee camps to be brought home soon
Kuwait City: Union minister of state for external affairs V Muraleedharan arrived here for a two-day visit on Saturday. He visited Indians lodged in refugee camps after being cheated by agents.
Muraleedharan assured that arrangements will be made soon to send back those ten persons.
“Strict action will be taken against those agents who are exploiting Indians including Keralites. Also the emigration procedures as part of recruitments will be made strict,” he told Mathrubhumi.
“No one should meet the fate of the sisters who are trapped in refugee camps after being cheated. Transparent and reliable recruiting through government agency will only be allowed. Restrictions will be put in place for domestic helps and nurses’ recruitment and will be made only through government agencies, he added.
Muraleedharan also responded that the pathetic condition of Thiruvananthapuram airport is because of the non-corporation from localities.
They are not cooperating with procuring land for developmental activities. Complaints regarding reduced flight services, closing down of duty free shop and no porter service will be addressed shortly. More importance will be given for the development of the airport, he further added.
Minister will also meet Kuwait officials and conduct discussions on issues faced by Indians in the country.
