It is sad and shameful when the Times Of India runs a piece condemning living conditions for Indians in Kuwait. The article is indicative of the power some Kuwaiti contracting companies have over the law. (LINK)
The protest was held on Monday by Indian, Egyptian and Filipino workers. “We live in inhuman conditions. We live in a desert in an uninhabited area. There are no telephones or modes of transportation. We have to drink polluted water, and the stench here is terrible. Also the place is infested with insects,” said Ashraf, one of the workers at the camp.
The workers are now almost imprisoned in the camp and can’t leave, the report in the Kuwait Times on Tuesday said. According to Ashraf, the municipality shut down the camp six months ago but the contracting company succeeded in reopening it.
