Kerala is safe for all; don't fall for false propaganda: DGP

"Kerala is a safe State for all", he said at a press conference held in English, Hindi and Bengali on Tuesday.

Behra said preliminary findings showed that the "canards" were meant to portray Kerala in a poor light. The campaign reportedly emanated from West Bengal. A video that has gone viral, however, shows the worker being beaten to death.

"[An] initial probe reveals that a few have spread the panic message after migrant labourers started leaving for their home states to celebrate Diwali and Pooja holidays", City police chief S Kaliraj Mahesh Kumar was quoted as saying.




In a series of tweets, Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Monday assured migrant workers in the state that they were safe and the police have launched a probe into reports that many migrant labourers were returning to their home states following a scare campaign that their lives are in danger in the state. "All the district administration and the police have been directed to take action against the spread of such lies and rumours through the social media", he said. Meanwhile, state police chief Loknath Behera appealed to the kith and kin of the migrant workers not to fall prey to such malicious campaign. An estimated three million workers from West Bengal, Bihar and the north-east work in various sectors in Kerala, including in the hospitality sector.

Minister for Labour T P Ramakrishnan said the government was committed to ensuring the safety of migrant workers and would continue to provide them with welfare measures. "This is meant to create unrest", he said. This includes accident insurance and financial aid for healthcare. Over the years, on numerous occasions, the state government has extended a helping hand to families of those who died working here.
