  • Posted Jul 5, 2014
Muzaffarpur is famous for delicious fruit Lichhi. The quality of Lichhi is very good and export abroad. There are medical and engineering and MBA college. People of this city is hard working and well behaved. But lack of factories and other source of employment people migrate from this city to metro city.
