Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Punjab state president and MP Bhagwant Mann has appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take up the issue surrounding the lives and livelihood of 8 lakh Indians working in Kuwait for years now, seeking his personal intervention.

In a letter written to prime minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday, Bhagwant Mann said the Kuwait government had started the process of reducing the number of foreign workers in that country, saying that more than 8 lakh Indians working there for years might face deportation if the foreign quota Bill got the nod of the Kuwait parliamentary committee.

Bhagwant Mann appealed to the Prime Minister to intervene in the matter, saying, "Of course, it is an independent decision of the Kuwaiti government, but it will have its ramifications on the Indians presently working there. So, Prime Minister Narendra Modi must intervene to protect the Indian citizens there” He beseeched the PM to urge the Kuwaiti government to reconsider its decision so as to save the Indian people working for decades, who, he added, went there in search of pastures after facing great hardships and hiccups.
