An elderly woman on Thursday approached the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) with a plea for help to bring back her son from Malaysia.
Her son Binay Jaiswal went to Malaysia around six months ago to work as a welder. The woman, Rajkumari Devi, returned from Nabanna with assurances that the state government would look into the matter and necessary steps will be taken to bring her son back.
The woman said that Jaiwal went to Malayisa after a person assured him a job of welder there. Jaiwal is a resident of Shibpur in Howrah. Around 40 youths went to Malaysia six months ago and Jaiwal was one of them.
Some other youths from Howrah had also gone to Malaysia at the same time for work. He decided to go to Malaysia after the company, for which he works, had assured that he will be given a job of a welder. But Jaiwal informed his family members that he has deprived as he has to clean toilet and need to do other odd jobs. He has not been given any work of a welder.
Some people there had taken away his passport and other relevant documents when he insisted on returning to India. They force him to continue with the job and threatened with dire consequence if he tries to come back to the country, alleged Rajkumari Devi adding that it is not always possible to talk to her son over phone.
On Thursday she approached the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) and a local councilor helped her to come to Nabbana. Senior officials in CMO gave a patient hearing to her problem and assured that the matter will be taken up seriously.
She said that the officials told her that they would contact the External Affairs Ministry and hopefully they can throw light on the matter within seven to eight days. Rajkumari Devi is hopeful that her son will come back home safely with the help of the state government.
It may be mentioned that a few days ago Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had assured all help to two women from Nadia district, whose husband were suspected to have been kidnapped by ISIS activists when they went there for job.
