Ahead of Lok Sabha Elections 2019, a reporter who was seeking was the public opinion on the current political scenario, met a daily labourer who replied to his questions in English. In a video by Lallantop, the man from Bihar could be seen talking about politics in English, much to the amuse of bystanders.

In the video, the labourer says that unemployment continues to be a big problem in the state. He compares the availability of jobs during the times of Indira Gandhi to current PM Narendra Modi. He says while he is a graduate from Bhagalpur University, he couldn't manage to find a job.

A graduate from Bihar who speaks in English not managing to find a job is a clear portrayal of the unemployment in the country.
