Indian embassy Deputy Chief of Mission Sri Shubhashish Goldar visited the workers camp of National Kharafi group at Shuaiba on Thursday and took a note of the issues faced by large number of Indian workers at the camp.
Last Wednesday, large number of Indians working for National Kharafi group had protested in front of Indian Embassy for the inhuman living condition at the camp and unpaid salaries of the workers. The workers were not been paid their salary for the past 6 months despite several promise from the company. For the last three weeks, the workers are also facing issues of water and electricity at their camp no 2 and 3 at Shuaiba. Later the Indian embassy had called up the Company officials and the officials promised that the pending due will be cleared by end of this month.
“The condition of our workers at these camps is very sad and the embassy is taking all efforts to solve the issue”, DCM Mr Subhashish Goldar told IndiansinKuwait.com. "Indian Ambassador will be meeting the chairman of Kharafi group very shortly to find a solution to the agonies of our workers," Mr Goldar told. Earlier also the Indian embassy had taken up the issues of non-payment of salary of Kharafi group employees to the official’s authorities. Despite the repeated promises, the company has not yet taken any action to settle the issues permanently.
Many of the workers have already resigned from job and want to go back to India however their dues are not yet paid by the company.
