People living in India are not the original inhabitants of this land. The original inhabitants were Dravid. People migrated from other lands and made India what it is today. Same is with America. People from several European countries came and settled there and made it into what it is today. Mumbai would not have been prosperous without people from Utter Pradesh and Biharies. Some politicians instead of being grateful are on to chase them away. I agree with your point you have mentioned in your question.

People migrate to cities in search of a living and this happens all over the world. All the above cities gave an opportunity for the migrants to make a living and if those migrants leave the city, that particular city would not starve. The vacant situations would be filled up by others. It is very arrogant on the part of the migrants to show disrespect to the people and the place which provides them an opportunity to live and grow and it is the migrant who is going to suffer if he is made to leave his lucrative job in that city. Life goes on with or without migrant workers.

Josna jee >> No doubt, at present, this topic has become a burning issue both at respective state and at national level. I am from Maharashtra and there is no wonder that `MNS` actions have become prime concern for all those migrants and shrewd politicians are baking their bread on a good heated iron plate for obvious gains. But thats not the big issue for this discussion as your question indicating whether it is the time to oppose regional fundamentalist. Personally, I don`t think there is such need on priority basis; because that `slogan` is politically motivated and except handful goons, 90% Maharashtra is against their policy. I am very active in this field at both political and student movement and you may find it astonished that I was even given police protection by local authority when I had arranged `Morcha` on Dist. Collectorate office against the MNS action of beating hard workers from north belt working in my city`s highly influential industrial area. These workers are widel ...more

While these cities wont starve if the migrants leave, integerity will take a beating if that happens. No state can say it is for the locals. India is one and preventing others in a state is sin. When a state recruit one from outside simply on the strenghth of his/her qualification over the locals present, it means the locals do not present the necessary qualification and the culprit is the state administration they live and not the outsiders. The unskilled from under developed states such as UP. Bihar, MP and Orissa migrate to other affluent states and towns for want of job and survival. Skilled from the developed states migrate to other nations for better jobs. Are we not make a hue and cry if such nations want to restrict such people?It is a natural process. Even when restrictions of migrations from other nations are opposed by world community, such oppositions against migrated people inside a nation is sin.
