“Migrant workers are under deep mental stress owing to severe financial crisis. There are only little chances of them getting desired jobs despite all efforts by the government, and hence they may indulge in crime to run their families,” says the letter issued by the ADG.

The letter also asked the officials to chalk out an action plan in advance to tackle the possible law and order problem as a result of their anguish.
