INDIA’S embassy and consulates in Saudi Arabia have begun free food distribution to Indian citizens in the country who have been laid off or left unpaid by dodgy bosses.
The consulate in Jeddah issued photos of workers lining up to receive food packages. Thousands of Indian construction workers have been made redundant during an industry slowdown and Saudi authorities take no responsibility for the welfare of foreign workers.
India’s Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj said that New Delhi would ensure no Indian worker had to go without food. A junior minister is also being dispatched to Saudi Arabia to assist Indian citizens who have trouble getting home.
Hundreds of thousands of Indians work in the Gulf kingdoms and they often toil in slave-like conditions, unable to change employer and suffering widespread racist discrimination. Complaints of unpaid wages and even physical violence against workers by their bosses are common.
