The Malayalee organizations in the Gulf have informed that there are hundreds of Malayalees who can not come home anytime because of the high flight of the season. This project will be comforting to them.
After the discovery of these people, they will be able to come back to the country. Those who can not land for a long time will be given preference. There is a dream of ‘dream dream’ for those who have been jailed in the Gulf region. Most prisoners can not land because they are free of money.The dream dream of giving them a flight ticket. The new model will be implemented on the same model.
