Thiruvananthapuram: The state government has asked the Centre to help nurses from the state "practically stranded" in Kuwait without job and income due to "foul play by unscrupulous" recruiting agencies.

In a letter to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, state Minister for Culture and Non Resident Keralites Affairs K C Josph said large number of nurses from the state recruited by various agencies were now practically stranded in Kuwait as they were not given employment as per terms and agreement.

More than 300 nurses were without job and income and such a situation has arisen "due to the foul play by the unscrupulous recruiting agencies", the minister said in the letter.

It was also stated that these nurses had paid substantial amount for getting visa.

Joseph wanted the Centre to explore the possibility of finding jobs for these nurses in the vacancies that exist in Kuwait Health and Education Ministries to avoid their repatriation.
