North Indian workers pouring into Tamilnadu

North Indian workers pouring into Tamilnadu

A few months ago, a video was released showing workers from the northern state arriving by train and alighting at the Chennai railway station. Following this, there are allegations that there is an increase in the number of workers from northern states in Tamil Nadu. A few days ago, a video of northern state workers chasing away and attacking Tamil Nadu workers in Tirupur has created a sensation.

The incident is under investigation. Against this incident Nam Tamilar Party coordinator Seeman said, “Wherever you look, there are North Indians. I don't know where this is going to stop. I have only one tremor. He expressed fear that he will walk in Eelam and walk here. Tamil Life Rights Party leader Velmurugan also condemned various parties. Comedian Madurai Muthu also released a video. Various parties have been posting comments on social media that the dominance of northern state workers is high and thus the livelihood of Tamil Nadu workers has been crippled.

Workers from foreign states including Jharkhand, Odisha, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh are coming to Tamil Nadu in large numbers. Initially engaged only in construction industry and garment manufacturing industry, now they are engaged in all kinds of work like restaurants, security work, lift operator. Similarly, expatriates, who initially worked mostly in Tirupur, Erode and Coimbatore districts, are now present in all districts of Tamil Nadu. More than 50 percent of the construction industry in Tamil Nadu are foreigners.

According to the April 2022 data released by Press Information Bureau the press information body of the Government of India, there are 34.87 lakh migrant workers in Tamil Nadu. Among them 7.13 lakh females and 27.74 lakh males.The influx of workers from northern states does not seem to be normal. No one can deny that it is destroying the livelihood of Tamilnadu workers little by little and causing unemployment to local people. Similarly, recently in Tamil Nadu, we see that people from northern states are involved in crimes like robbery and theft. It is time to change or control this situation. The Tamil Nadu government is also closely monitoring this matter. In some way the livelihood of the people of Tamil Nadu should be restored before it is too late.
