NEWS | Exodus of northeastern people hits hospitality businesses in Bangalore

Recent reports suggest that close to 10,000 people from Northeast have left Bangalore over the past 24 hours after rumours that there is a threat to their lives. This has hit the hospitality sector the most as one of the highest ratio of its employees belong to Northeast. This has come in the wake of the violence between Bodos and Muslim settlers in Assam and the consequent tension, including subsequent violence in Mumbai. Northeast people are now becoming target of violence in several parts of the country. Rumours are being spread to create fear in their minds.
“Sir, too much tension today; majority of my workers have left,” said supervisor of a restaurant, busy giving multiple commands to the leftover staff to manage the situation. It was a similar situation at a pub opposite this restaurant. Karnataka Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar reviewed the situation with the home minister, home secretary, chief secretary and police chief. He also met representatives of NE communities, assuring them of full security. “If the people of the northeast leave Bangalore in large numbers over the next few days, the hotel industry will be worst affected, as it is very difficult to find replacements. A lot of people from Assam, Arunachal Pradesh and Nagaland are engaged as cooks, captains and waiters in many hotels, especially restaurants serving Chinese and north Indian cuisine,” Vasudeva Adiga, president, Bangalore Hoteliers Association, and owner of the Adiga chain of restaurants said in a report by Business Standard. Close to 10,000 people are working in various hotels and restaurants in Bangalore and many hotels have reported an exodus of workers in the past two days, Adiga added.
