KUWAIT CITY, Sept 8 : Nineteen young people from Tamil Nadu, who had been trapped in a difficult situation in Kuwait due to their prolonged association with a travel agency, were ultimately rescued thanks to the collaborative efforts of the Indian embassy. Their path to freedom reached its culmination as they arrived at Chennai airport on a Thursday, receiving a warm welcome from Tamil Nadu Minister K.S. Masthan and a group of other government officials, reports Alseyassah.

These youths had initially embarked on a journey of hope, having entrusted a travel agency with a sum of one lakh rupees each, in exchange for the promise of a monthly salary of Rs 60,000 along with complimentary accommodation and meals. However, upon reaching Kuwait what they had perceived as a ‘dreamland,’ their expectations were shattered. Instead of the promised remuneration, they were informed that they would receive a meager Rs 18,000 per month, with the added burden of covering their own expenses for lodging and food. Furthermore, the agency imposed longer working hours on them, adding to their dismay.

As the situation deteriorated, the youngsters sought to break free from their contractual obligations with the agency. To their astonishment, the agency demanded a staggering Rs 60,000 from each individual to terminate the agreement. Matters took a darker turn in June of the same year when they were informed that their visas had expired and that renewal would cost them Rs 1,25,000 each, an exorbitant sum they couldn’t afford.

Faced with a seemingly insurmountable predicament, the youths found themselves in dire straits as the agency heartlessly disconnected their power and water supply. It was at this critical juncture that they reached out to the Indian embassy, narrating the harrowing ordeal they had endured.

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.K. Stalin, showing great concern for the plight of these 19 young individuals, took proactive measures. He initiated contact with the Indian embassy in Kuwait, urging them to expedite the release of these beleaguered youths.
