He also attacked the Centre over the migrant crisis triggered by the pandemic-induced lockdown, alleging when workers from Bihar were being “chased away” from other states the prime minister did nothing to help them.

“He bows before the labourers but does not help them when they need it,” he said. He demanded that the prime minister tell Biharis how many jobs he gave them and when.
