India evacuates 10,000 starving construction workers from Gulf states

Indian government is elaborating a plan to evacuate nearly 10,000 of builders, who had been working at the construction sites of Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, Global Construction Review reports.


The builders were fired following the slowdown of the country's economic activity, what left them on the poverty line.

At present, the Indian consulate in Jeddah set up the emergency distribution of more than 15,000 kg of food for their starving compatriots.

After the drop in oil prices, the government of Saudi Arabia had to reduce expenditure, what effected negatively the country's conservation industry, in particular, the companies heavily dependent on state contracts.

Under such circumstances the construction companies fired tens of thousands of workers, many of whom didn't receive payment.
