A few generations of Keralites have toiled in the desert landscape and contributed to our economy (incl themselves). While they worked in the Gulf, their families have suffered the pangs of separation.
Successive governments have failed to live up to their expectations.
It is payback time. To listen to them, to be empathetic. Central and State Governments, with the active support of others like Sashi Tharoor, should pitch in and deliver.
That would be part of the legacy of these governments/political leaders.
