Anxiety has gripped hundreds of thousands of overseas Indian workers in Kuwait following a new bill to introduce quotas on migrant laborers. The bill proposed by the Gulf state’s National Assembly last month seeks to limit the number of Indian residents and workers to 15 percent of the country’s population, requiring about 800,000 Indians to return home. Kuwait’s population of 4.3 million includes at least 1.45 million Indians. The Indian government should take it seriously and engage Kuwait and the Gulf countries and ask them not to threaten the interests of the workers.
