Amid pressure from the opposition over alleged attacks on migrants from Bihar in Tamil Nadu, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has formed a four-member team which will be visiting Tamil Nadu on Saturday to take stock of the situation and will be submitting a report to the CM following their visit.
The four-member team includes D Balamurugan, Secretary, Rural Development, P Kanan, IPS (IG CID), Shree Alok, Special Secretary, Labour Department and an IPS officer. The Bihar police on Friday claimed that the videos circulating on Social media showing alleged attacks on migrant labourers in Tamil Nadu are ‘misleading’
