PATNA: Buoyed by the all round development in Bihar, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday said new avenues were being opened in the state and Biharis would not have to migrate to other states in search of bread and butter.

After his janata darbar, Mr Kumar said job opportunities have increased immensely and people of all sections were getting work in their home place.

Exodus of labourers have slipped by 26 per cent, he said referring to the observation of former Governor of Bihar R L Bhatia who had mentioned that migration of the labourers from Bihar to Punjab had declined remarkably.

Bihar deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi too had got the same feedback during his recent Gujarat visit where he was told that Bihari labourers do not return from their hometown, informed the CM saying that the latest report only revealed that the people of Bihar were not compelled anymore to migrate in search of livelihood and the scenario is changing.
