In the presence of Collector Sanjay Kumar Mishra and SP Dharmaraj Meena, a batch of 41 laborers reached Panna on Saturday. All these laborers belong to Sakariya Gram Panchayat and went to Solapur in Maharashtra to work as laborers. These laborers were sent there through a contractor. The workers told that even after working for more than 1 month, neither they got wages nor their food was arranged. When somehow the administration got information about this, they were rescued from there. Many workers alleged that the contractor beat them up.
Can’t find work, can’t stop migrating
Significantly, the workers are not getting any work in the labor minister’s district itself. The liberation of bonded laborers exposed the administration’s claims. The reality is that these workers are seduced by people. The process of migration of laborers has not stopped here. Even though the government is talking about giving work to every laborer by running a scheme like MNREGA, but the situation is the opposite.91 bonded laborers were rescued recently
Let me tell you, the administration looted accolades by rescuing 91 bonded laborers in Panna a few days ago. And now these 41 laborers are being rescued and sent to their homes. The collector said that these laborers came from Maharashtra, so their corona is also being investigated. Significantly, there are hundreds of families who are forced to flee daily.
