The Northeast Welfare Association Karnataka ( NEWAK)  has apprised respective state governments of the Northeast of ochallenges ahead for  people from the Northeast as most employees (private sectors) will not get their salaries for April month. 

A press release b NEWAK president Vezokho Resu  stated that non receipt of salary will affect payment of house rent, personal expenses, refilling Gas, EMI’s etc etc. Apart from this,  NEWAK said people from the Northeast are often faced discrimination by being “Corona virus” and not allowed to buy groceries in some places, stating that this is racism.  The release stated that returning home for migrant workers is not a solution now because ‘there is no jobs security in our home States’, further asking who will pay their house rent and other bills? NEWAK appealed to States and Centre Government to step forward and address the issue. 

It stated that of their grievances are not taken seriously , many migrant workers especially  those from the Northeast will be forced to move out and go back to their home States because there will be no way to pay the bills and survive, adding that it will create more unemployment issues for  the eight north-eastern states. 

NEWAK reminded it is the responsibility of every organizations/religious institutions/NGO’S/unions/societies from every section of communities from NE,  besides the States and Central Government to come forward and help them at  this juncture

NEWAK stated that so far they have received support from  ‘Sundbird Trust’  for rations and some like-minded individuals who contribute financially to spend for transportation and other needs but lamented that two to three times of relief distribution will not suffice.
