Indian workers fear effect of Saudi crackdown

Clamp down on foreign workers in bid to open up posts for out-of-work Saudis leaves returning migrants jobless.

    There is growing concern over the fate of Indian migrant workers returning home from Saudi Arabia.

    The Saudi government is clamping down on all foreign workers, in a bid to reduce unemployment among Saudi nationals.

    Civil society groups in India say industries need to be urgently developed so the skills set of those returning can be utilised in manufacturing or construction.

    Al Jazeera's Sohail Rahman went to the Indian state of Kerala, to investigate the fallout.
