Narrating tales of their suffering, the youths told the media at Phillaur that they will never ever think again of going abroad to earn a livelihood.
SAD MLA Baldev Singh Khaira who was also present on the occasion said he will raise the issue of unscrupulous travel agents in the Vidhan Sabha during the session begining August 2. He urged the government to take firm steps to put such travel agents behind the bars and ensure the duped youths got their money back.
Phagwara youth Komaljit, son of labourer Mohan Lal, had an advice to those nurturing ‘phoren’ dreams. “It is better to work hard in home country to earn a livelihood than becoming a beggar abroad,” Komaljit said as he arrived at his house in Kaulsar locality.
