POOR WORKERS CONTINUE TO MIGRATE
Wednesday, 01 April 2015 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
Though the State Government has enacted several pro-poor and welfare schemes and assured the poor people to provide jobs at door step, large number of poor people are still migrating to neighbouring States in search of jobs in brick kilns only to face exploitation and torture. Notably, as many as 19 poor labourers of Khalipali village of Muribahal in Balangir district had migrated to brick kilns at Peddapally village in Karimnagar district of North Telangana in November, 2014 through a Sardar of Kantabanji.
As the work condition was not conducive, two migrants, Kailash Bagand and Sunya Tandi escaped from the brick kilns. The labourers are hiding in jungle in day time and returning to village in the night. Neither they can go back to the brick kiln site due to fear of attack nor they can go to village and face threats of the local Sardar, says an NGO activist. Both the labourers have urged the District Labour Officer to rescue the remaining 17 labourers stuck in the brick kilns of Telangan
