It is a praiseworthy step taken by the Madhya Pradesh government to organize employment fairs across the State for labours, including the migrant workers who returned from different states after losing their respective jobs during the time of nationwide lockdown. The government will make arrangements to ferry the workers to such fairs and back home. Moreover, they will be provided with food and water during the fairs. Recently, the MP government has launched an employment portal, the 'Rozgar Setu' and engaged more than three hundred migrant labourers through it. Moreover, ten thousand employers have also registered themselves on the portal. Such types of exemplary steps or decisions by the government are very much required at present to help the poor migrant labourers and to check unemployment. If other State governments also try to follow the MP government in this regard, it would be a boon for the millions of jobless migrant workers across the country.
