Hyderabad: Telangana government delegation to United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Sunday visited Abu Dhabi and interacted with migrants from the State who explained their problems. Smita Pant, Deputy Chief of Mission at Indian High Commission, promised to look into the issues brought to her notice and help the Gulf migrants.

The delegation led by senior IAS officer Arvinder Singh was informed that the migrants were having a tough time to interact with the local authorities as well as those at the Indian Embassy due to language problem. They complained that due to lack of language skills, many migrants were unable to get their issues resolved at the Indian Embassy. When the issue was brought to the notice of the Indian Embassy authorities, they said that they would employ a Telugu translator to help the migrants who were working in UAE.

Meanwhile, 25 migrants who were living in UAE without valid documents availed Amnesty and reached Hyderabad on Sunday. The officials made all arrangements to get them transported to their native villages. The State government sponsored flight tickets for the 25 migrants who were stuck in UAE due to lack of valid documents.

TRS NRI Wing coordinator Mahesh Bigala and others were also part of the official delegation which has been touring UAE for the last three days to help the workers from Telangana.
