    they say / boast that our state is ahead of other states ... why do they go for labour jobs in desert countries ... they trouble all businessmen who try to set up in KL with inkilab zindabad, higher wages, better working conditions etc. they are under communist (so called) rule for ages , aware of labour rights very well still go to gulf to work / live under inhuman conditions ... the building in question is labour accommodation ( aka labour "camp" ) ...
