Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Election Commission has appealed to migrant workers to come to Madhya Pradesh and cast vote on November 17. There are many districts in Madhya Pradesh from where hundreds of labourers migrate to other states temporarily in search for job.

According to Burhanpur district collector Bhavya Mittal, labourers from Burhanpur go to Maharashtra to harvest sugarcane.

The district administration has collected village-wise numbers of migrant labourers who are being contacted to cast vote. There are 4,000 workers in Burhanpur district who go out of Madhya Pradesh to work. They are being contacted through 30-second recorded message, which is in Mittal’s voice.

Chief Electoral Officer Anupam Rajan said request had been made to migrant labourers to visit their village exercise their franchise.

Labourers from Mandla, Betul, Burhanpur, Chhindwara, Panna, Shahdol, Anuppur, Umaria, Alirajpur, Jhabua, Barwani go to other states, specially to Haryana, Delhi, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharastra and Punjab with their families in search of jobs.

As their votes can make a difference, political parties too are making efforts to bring migrant labourers home for Diwali festival and stay for few days more to cast vote.

The political parties are approaching their families to take their mobile numbers to contact them for voting.
