Indians almost starving in Saudi are over 10,000, not 800: Sushma Swaraj

NEW DELHI: In a humanitarian crisis, over 10,000 Indian workers in Saudi Arabia are facing severe food shortage due to financial hardship after losing their jobs and the government has ordered its mission in the Gulf nation to provide food to them besides other assistance. Late in the evening, External Affairs Minister+ Sushma Swaraj appealed to 30 lakhs Indians in that country to help their "fellow brothers and sisters", asserting that there is nothing "mightier" than the collective will of the Indian nation. "We have asked @IndianEmbRiyadh to provide free ration to the unemployed Indian workers in Saudi Arabia," she said in a series of tweets. Swaraj said Indians in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait were facing various problems relating to their work and wages and that the "matters are much worse" in the former.Her initial response came following a tweet by a man who said around 800 Indians were starving for the last three days in Jeddah and sought her intervention.

Sad state of affairs in Saudi for Indians! With oil prices plummeting many of the Gulf countries are running in defcit! Appreciate this call by Union Minister Sushmaji who has become the darling of NRI's in distress!
