Migrant workers heave a sigh of relief from harassment over payment of rent

With CRDO’s intervention, a group of Chakma brethren who are living in SIDCO Mudalipalyam who off late have been constantly harassed by their landlord’s son-in-law due to inability to pay off their room rent can now breathe a sigh of relief.

With the help of our local contacts we managed to make the landlord’s son-in-law understand the helplessness of our people who have barely anything left to eat, let alone pay rent.

This is far from over, just got a call again from one group living in Krishgnagiri who have been warned to vacate their room if they are unable to pay off their rent by this Saturday. We are following this up.

These masks will be distributed to the volunteers and inmates of the various quarantine centers.
