KATHMANDU, Jan 4: Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, Prem Bahadur Ale, has warned of stern action against those involved in giving unnecessary hassles against migrant workers at the Tribhuvan International Airport(TIA). 

While receiving a memorandum submitted by the Unified Foreign Employment Entrepreneurs' Organization (UFEEO) on Monday, Ale said foreign employment should be respected as the remittance sent by migrant workers has been the lifeblood of the country’s economy. “The youths who opt for foreign employment for income must be respected. They must not be hassled at all," he added. 

The UFEEO drew the attention of Minister Ale that those leaving the country for foreign employment were facing hassles at the airport. Minister Ale reminded that after he became the line minister, he managed free WiFi, resting places and drinking water facilities for free of cost at the international airport. "I'm always positive for the rights of migrant workers," he further said.

Under the direction of Minister Ale, Nepal Airlines Corporation has been providing foreign travel tickets at discounted rates to 40 migrant workers. Submitting the memorandum, the organization said that the employees at the airport were harassing the migrant workers despite producing all necessary documents.
