Sri City MD Ravindra Sannarareddy has thanked the Revenue and Police Officers for their assistance and guidance in this endeavour. He said that it is very heartening to know that all those who departed are willing to come back for works in Sri City.
Sri City Security Manager Y Ramesh stated that the guest labourers are put up at 16 different camps in the industrial park and ever since the lockdown was imposed, they have been monitoring their well-being.
There are over 2,000 guest workers from different states, such as Odisha, Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal, engaged in the construction works at various industries in Sri City. Although construction is now permitted with lock-down relaxations, as most workers are eager to visit their homes, Sri City has took initiative to help them in sending them to their native places.
