Adhir Chowdhury urges Mamata to form 'new department' for welfare of Bengali migrants

Chowdhury noted that several residents of West Bengal have been working as migrant labourers due to COVID.

West Bengal Congress chief Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury wrote a letter to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday, requesting the formation of a new department exclusively dedicated to the welfare of Bengali migrants.


In his letter, Chowdhury noted that several residents of West Bengal have been working as migrant labourers in various metropolitan cities around the country due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


A large number of Bengali residents have also moved to Gulf countries in search of work, exposing themselves to unscrupulous placement agents, he added.


Meanwhile, Mamata extended lockdown in West Bengal till July 1.
