Keralites in UAE asked to coordinate with UAE agencies to help those affected by the pandemic.
Chief Minister of South Indian State of Kerala, Pinarayi Vijayan, has expressed his appreciation for the work being done by the UAE Government in protecting expatriates living in the UAE, Wam reported on Monday.
The Government of Kerala has asked the Keralite community organisations in the UAE to coordinate their efforts with UAE agencies to provide relief to those affected by the new coronavirus, Covid-19, pandemic.
There could be some hardships due to restrictions on people’s movement just as in India, but the need of the hour is to adhere to the protocols envisaged by the authorities, the Chief Minister pointed out.
“We have also looped the Government of India and Prime Minister Narendra Modi regarding the representations received from our expatriates in the UAE.
“I am sure the Government of India would be talking to the UAE Government through the Indian Embassy and the Consulate General in the UAE on all matters concerning the expatriates,” Vijayan noted.
“The relations between Kerala and the UAE go back many decades centuries, if we consider the trading relations between Kerala and the Arabian Peninsula. We can never forget the care and concern shown to us by the UAE’s wise leadership and people during the floods in Kerala,” he reminisced.
“We are all together in this fight against a deadly virus that is wreaking havoc across the world. We are sure the UAE and its able and efficient leadership is doing its best to protect the people living in its blessed soil – citizens, residents and visitors,” he stressed.
“While I wish Emirati brothers and sisters a speedy triumph over the virus, we reiterate our utmost regard and respect for the UAE and its leadership and people. Our warm and fraternal bonds have always been symbiotic and will remain so for ages to come,” the Chief Minister concluded.
