Indian Ambassador to the Kingdom Hamid Ali Rao and Sibi George, the newly appointed deputy chief of the mission, and several Indian embassy officials are doing a commendable job by focusing on the grievances of distressed Indian workers. The Indian mission recently held an open house for the members of the Indian community at the Embassy in Riyadh for the Indian community residing in and around Riyadh.
This forum has been there in existence but due to lack of adequate publicity, the NRIs of various categories were not making good use of the facility. The Indian Embassy should consider ways and means to protect its nationals working in the Kingdom by forming fact-finding missions to analyze and understand the problems faced by the immigrant workforce and provide solutions. Ambassador Rao’s initiative is highly appreciated by the Indian community residing in the Kingdom.
Every Indian citizen should utilize this good initiative by encouraging more Indians to attend this open house and bring their genuine grievances to the fore so that the mission is able to find solutions for them. — Mir Gazanfar Ali Zaki, Jeddah
