With so much uncertainty all over due to corona, it is crucial that leaders directly answer pertinent questions to our citizenry. This has been the sole motive behind conceptualizing the E-Vimarsh series.”
The event was orgsanised at a time when the nation nears the end of Lockdown 4.0, and COVID positive cases have crossed 3000 in Bihar as of 29 May 2020.
Apart from protecting the people from contracting the disease and ensuring health infrastructure is up to the task, another issue the Bihar government is facing is that of migrant workers returning to their home state in huge numbers.
Transportation and isolation of incoming migrants who return in lakhs is a huge task the government has had to face.
