And after the coronavirus nationwide lockdown unemployment become very critical and dangerous across the country. Youths are not getting jobs as per their qualification in Bihar so that they have to move out from state unconditionally which is causing migration a lot.
As per the government data around 40 lacs registered labor working outside Bihar in which around 30 lacs already back to their homes due to the lockdown in March, April & May 2020. The government of Bihar should take the necessary steps to eradicate it by creating more government and public sector job opportunities in the state. Also, it needs to support the Private sector industry that could provide jobs to the ones who really deserve it.
