Referring to a report by the Center for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE), West Bengal’s chief minister, Mamata Banerjee, said today that the state unemployment rate was 6.5% in June this year, which was “much better” than the national average at 11 percent.

She said this was due to the economic strategy adopted by her government to deal with the COVID-19 crisis and the devastation caused by Cyclone Amphan.

“We have implemented a solid economic strategy to fight # COVID19 and the ravages caused by Amphan. The proof lies in the unemployment rate of West Bengal for the month of June 2020 which is at 6.5%, much better that of India at 11%., UP at 9.6% and Haryana at 33.6%, according to the CMIE, “said Ms. Banerjee in a tweet.

According to data released Wednesday by the Center for Monitoring Indian Economy, the country’s unemployment rate fell to 11% in June from 23.5% in May as economic activity resumed after easing of lock-in restrictions .
