Migration should not be seen as a problem, people are free to move from one place to another: Nitish

PATNA: Bihar Prime Minister Nitish Kumar said Sunday that the migration of people from one state to another should not be seen as a problem, since he said that the nation is one and that people are free to move from one place to another.

The reaction of the head of Janata Dal (United) came after the electoral strategist and former national vice president of the party and Kanhaiya Kumar of the IPC raised the issue of the migration of young people from Bihar to other states and unemployment recently.

Addressing a JD (U) 'karyakarta sammelan' here, Kumar challenged his political opponents to take a look at the various measures taken by his government that have resulted in job creation.

In telling a conversation he had with Raghunandan Lal Bhatia, who served as governor of Bihar in 2008-09, Kumar said: He asked me why Punjab had started receiving fewer migrant workers from Bihar. Similar was the observation of the then deputy chief minister of Punjab Sukhbir Singh Badal .

He said a drop in the number of migrant workers in Bihar was also the common saying in Bhutan when he visited the Himalayan kingdom.

Those who are interested in knowing the facts can come to us. We will provide you with exact figures for the number of vacancies covered by the state commission of public service and other agencies responsible for labor recruitment. They will also be given an exact idea. how much things have changed since the previous regimes, Kumar said.

He, however, also said ek gandi cheez shuru ho gayi hai migration ke naam se (a bad thing has started by way of this discourse over migration).

The nation is one and belongs to all. People from all parts of the country have and must be free to travel to any other part. Has Bihar not benefited from the services of nurses in Kerala for a long time? Do people from other parts of the country do not contribute to the growth of states using their talents here? the prime minister asked.

So why should it be seen as a problem if our people go to other parts of the country, make use of their skills and help the local economy thrive while making a living, he said.
