According to a survey, about 12,000 migrant workers associated with the textile industries have come back to Gorakhpur and adjoining districts during the lockdown.

"The government is making serious efforts for employing them at places near their native places and most of them have already been employed," the chief minister said.

Praising the efforts of the COI in the construction of Udyog Bhawan building, the chief minister said that the initiative will soon be taken on the demand of COI for constructing a flex factory complex.

"Bigger industrialist should also come forward and GIDA is also working for increasing the land bank for industrial units," he said.
