Bengaluru, May 24, 2020: As the Lockdown has completed two months from its full form and to the present status pf controlled lockdown, there is one section of people who are not bothered about the Pandemic COVID 19 or its potential danger to the entire mankind.
There is no need to mention who are they and what mindset they have. It’s the same set people whoclaims to be oldest political group, the Indian National Congress. A party once fought for freedom and independent India is now in the hands of a foreign Mafia, that is bent upon to break the country but aimed at the welfare of one family. Family of Nehru who still keeps their surname of great Father of Nation with whom the family has no umbilical chord relationship.
Past one week political arena has turned into full drama. From Priyanka Vadra, daughter of Antonia Maino (my apologies to paid journalist Rajdeep Sardesai as he detests mother of Priyanka and the bafoon Rahul @ Raul Vinci, had been trying to prove that Indian Government has failed to look after Migrant labourers who are stuck in various states.
Congress do not want to hire or utilise services of Indian Railways fearing that ruling BJP may take credit, though it had taken initiatives to deploy trains. There will be hundreds of trains to ferry as many as many stranded migrant labourers. The total number of migrant labourers thus thus returned to their native states has touched 75 lakh with the government plans to deploy 500 more trains.
Why Congress and some of Opposition parties are eager to helpthese labourers? It is the feeling of guilt that these workers were utilised to make money for themselves.
When talking to some of migrant workers, especially from 24 Parganas in West Bengal a shocking truth unveiled. Many of them, perhaps almost all of them, claimed that some agents, they call them agents but Labour contractors, approached them with offers of jobs with handsome wages. Bengal has a dubious history of human trafficking of Bngladeshis.In fact theses agents has a well connected racket to get these workers unskilled jobs in various states.
If any employer wants to get these workers , they are asked to pay up these men and women. The employers pay money after getting assurance that these workers are now their slaves. Not satisfied by this, these human traffickers then demand a month’s salary from each of the worker. There ends all relationships with these workers. Most agents having high political connections promise the employer that they ned no bother about paying social security measures like Provident Fund or at least Employees State Insurance, a government initiative to extend medical facilities in case of emergencies and also if the worker loses his life.
The sudden love for Migrant labourers is out of fear that these human traffickers might get exposed if a probe is ordered by the government. There are unskilled labourers to hotel workers, beauticians who sometimes double up as staff of Massage Parlours. These workers unfortunately were caught unawares during Lockdown without cash or resources to either for return journey or to buy provisions. There will not be any trace of theor employers or the agents who double up as human traffickers.
From Priyanka Vadra to Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee President D K Shiva Kumar has shown their concern to migrant workers as they suspected their role in the human trafficking will come out in the open. And theses Mafia will be exposed soon, a source in MHA said.
