India India – Bihar is one of the Indian states with the largest population of migrant workers. Most of them migrate to other states in search of better pay, healthy living and easy employment but given the situation of the ongoing pandemic in the country, they might again have to go back to their respective places.

The migrants are spread all over Delhi, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal among other states and as the Indian government tries to figure out a decision on the pandemic situation, especially something that concerns lockdown, the migrant workers are worried about finding their way back home.
