Migrants in fear over Kozhikode assault video, CM Pinarayi Vijayan blames efforts from north
Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has come down heavily on the false propaganda that the state is unsafe for migrant workers, saying that some anti-social elements are spreading rumours.
In another tweet Vijayan said: "Kerala society is rooted in harmony". Kerala government assures all those affected by these rumours that their fear is unfounded and urge not to pay attention to such fake news. The campaign reportedly emanated from West Bengal.
Muhammed Suhail, president of the Kerala Hotel and Restaurant Association in Kozhikode, said that the 26-year-old youth committed suicide due to family issues.
State police chief Loknath Behera on Tuesday issued a statement giving assurances of safety to migrant workers in the backdrop of fake stories being circulated on social media platforms of widespread attacks on workers from other states. The rumours were spread mainly among the migrant workers from Assam, West Bengal and Odisha. "All the district administration and the police have been directed to take action against the spread of such lies and rumours through the social media", he said. "It will always remain as one of the best states in the country for people to work & live in". Simultaneously, the Labour Department would take steps to enforce minimum accommodation standards for migrant labourers across the State. We have complained to the police in this regard, " he said. Behera pointed out the government has launched various welfare measures such as strict implementation of labour laws, ensuring good accommodation and other amenities, providing education and healthcare to children of migrant labourers and literacy campaign for migrants.
The false campaign also used videos of mob lynching in the North to scare and trigger panic among the workers.
