Migrant workers leaving Kerala due to increasing number of criminal cases, construction sectors to suffer?

ALUVA: As the number of criminal cases against migrant workers is increasing in the state, reports suggest that a great section of these workers have started moving back to their native states. Reports also suggested that the number of migrant workers who recently left the state is higher than usual.

Though many workers leave the state saying that they would soon return to Kerala, the condition in the state does not seem favourable to them, a contractor said. Meanwhile, the reduction in the number of migrant workers might pose a great threat to the construction sector in the state. Following this, owners of small-scale industrial establishments demanded that police and locals must act cautiously regarding this issue.


It must be noted that the public has been raising protests against the migrant labourers ever since the arrest of some labourers in connection with two murders in Perumbavoor. Sources also said that the Aluva railway station has recently witnessed a huge rush in the number of migrants leaving the state.
