Phagwara, October 26
A day after state residents made an fervent appeal to External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar to help nearly 100 Punjabi workers stranded in Abu Dhabi without passports, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has acted swiftly and initiated action.
Jaishankar has directed the Indian consulate in Dubai to extend all possible help to the workers stranded in the UAE, and asked the officials concerned to make arrangements to get them back to India.
Passports of these workers are reportedly with Square General Contracting Co, Abu Dhabi, a private company, which has removed workers, but their passports are not being returned.
Dilbag Singh of Baina Pur village, a social activist, in a representation to the Foreign Minister, requested him to direct the Indian embassy in Abu Dhabi to take up the issue with the authorities there.

The Tribune, now published from Chandigarh, started publication on February 2, 1881, in Lahore (now in Pakistan). It was started by Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia, a public-spirited philanthropist, and is run by a trust comprising four eminent persons as trustees.
The Tribune, the largest selling English daily in North India, publishes news and views without any bias or prejudice of any kind. Restraint and moderation, rather than agitational language and partisanship, are the hallmarks of the paper. It is an independent newspaper in the real sense of the term.
The Tribune has two sister publications, Punjabi Tribune (in Punjabi) and Dainik Tribune (in Hindi).
