In some good news for Telangana which is currently grappling with a shortage of workers thanks to most of the migrant workers leaving the state, those who had gone to their native places are now returning to the state to work.
Around 225 migrant workers from Bihar returned to the state on Friday.
They will be placed to work in the various rice mills of the state.
Civil Supplies Minister Gangula Kamalakar, Civil Supplies Corporation Chairman M Srinivas Reddy and Rythu Bandhu Samithi Chairman Palla Rajeshwar Reddy welcomed the workers into the state by handing over bouquets to them.
Speaking on the occasion, Kamalakar said that they would send the workers in special buses to districts including Karimnagar, Jagtiyal, Siddipeta, Miryalaguda, Kamareddy, Peddapalle and Nalgonda to work, after performing tests on them.
The workers have also been given food and water packets by the authorities of the state government.
