Ignore 'Fake News'; Kerala CM assures migrant workers' safety in the State

Category: National Published: Tuesday, 10 October 2017


CM's Facebook post quotes... 

"It has come to the notice of the Kerala government that some anti-social elements are spreading rumors among migrant workers working in Kerala. There are no confirmed reports of violence or any such unpleasant incidents in kerala against migrant workers in recent past. I strongly condemn attempts by vested interests to tarnish the image of Kerala by spreading unrest in the peaceful atmosphere of the state.

Kerala govt assures all those affected by these rumours that their fear is unfounded. & urge not to pay attention to the such fake news. All the district admins and the police have been directed to take action against the spread of such lies and rumours through the social media. Police will be vigilant on Facebook, Whatsapp, Twitter & other social media sites to track miscreants spreading such rumors aiming to create unrest in society. 

In fact, other state workers are given good consideration in Kerala. The state government has implemented many welfare schemes for them. Kerala's social fabric is made up of mutual brotherhood and respect for working class because of the result of years of struggle against hate and oppression.

On behalf of the people of Kerala and the government, I assure all migrant workers from other states once again that they are safe and are always welcome in Kerala."
