The Chief Minister was informed that all of them are working as fitters in Kalpataru Power Transmission Limited from the year 2021. The contractor has confiscated their passport and  returned to India. It has been more than three months, but they were not paid  salary and felt problems in flooding and essentials. Taking cognizance of the matter, the Chief Minister ordered the State Migrant Control Room for the safe return of the workers. After this, the State Migrant Control Room contacted the country head and manager of the company and made them aware of the problems of the workers and asked them to make proper arrangements for their food and pay their salaries.

Considering the seriousness of the matter, the Indian Embassy in Mali was contacted and informed about the incident. Representatives of the company, contractor and workers were called by the embassy to the embassy office for talks. After this, a memorandum of understanding was signed by the representatives of the three parties in the Embassy office and the return of the workers was ensured.
