DOHA: Nearly 1,200 Nepali migrant workers have been stranded in Saudi Arabia. Among those stranded are 900 men and 300 women.

The Nepali workers associated with Smasco Supply Company in Riyadh have complained that their company has not renewed their contract even though it expired seven months ago nor has it made any arrangement for them to return home.

Accusing the Nepali Embassy in Riyadh of not paying heed to their woes, the victims have hit the streets shouting slogans against the Nepal government.

As many as 600 Nepalis whose visas have already expired are desperately waiting to return home. However, the flight has not been arranged so far due to the lack of coordination between their company and the Embassy.

They have been spending their tiring days in their room since there are no jobs in the company. The company has even reduced the salary of those who are still working for the company.

They complain that even though they want to return home on their own expenses, the Nepal government and the Nepali Embassy in Riyadh have ignored their appeal.

They have been rendered jobless since the last six months.

Nepali Majdoor Ekata Samaj, Saudi Arabia has said thousands of Nepalis took to the streets shouting slogans against the Nepal Government and the Nepali Embassy.
