The founding chairman of the organization Professor Dr. Tasnim Siddiqui said that it was created due to a kind of “uneven exchange” between the recruiting agencies of Bangladesh and the relevant offices in Malaysia.

For this reason, he urged the government to take initiative to return the money to those whose money could not be sent to Malaysia.

State Minister for Expatriate Welfare Shafiqur Rahman Chowdhury told the media in Sylhet on Saturday that the workers could not go to Malaysia because of the negligence of the recruiting agency or Baira.

“We are investigating the matter. Action will be taken against those responsible,” said the state minister.

What is the fate of disadvantaged workers?
After the corona epidemic, Malaysia announced the re-opening of the labor market in 2022.

It is said in various media that until last May 21, Bangladesh Manpower Employment and Training Bureau (BMET) allowed about 5 lakh 24 thousand workers to go to Malaysia.

The deadline for these workers to go to Malaysia is May 31. The matter was clearly communicated to Bangladesh by Malaysia.

Last Thursday, 492,000 workers went to the country. Out of the remaining 32,000 workers, 150,000 workers got a chance to go to Malaysia on a total of 10 flights last Friday.

Bayra executive committee member Ruhul Amin Swapan said, “There are not too many workers left out. Still, our government is in touch with the Malaysian authorities.”

“We are waiting to see what happens to those who have valid visas,” said Bayar’s Noman.

In an interview given to the media, State Minister for Expatriate Welfare Chowdhury said, “We have urged the recruiting agencies from the beginning. They have made various excuses since the beginning. Those responsible for this incident will be punished.”
