Patna: The government is very conscious of the liquor ban in Bihar. In the same vein, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said that he had been in favor of prohibition since childhood. It was not easy to implement it in the State. Before him, Jannayak Karpuri Thakur, while he was CM, imposed prohibition in 1977. However, after two to two and a half years, they withdrew, and then the law was removed. The law has come into force only after getting support from women.
Referring to the 2016 survey of the same WHO, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said that every year 30 lakh people fall prey to the age group of 30 lakh people due to which 13.5 percent of the deaths are due to people between the age group of 20 and 39 years. Alcohol causes serious diseases. It increases about 200 diseases.
He said that along with development, we are also working for social reforms. Talking about prohibition, the CM said that if there are people of any religion, religion, pick up the entire history and see how good it will do, some people will make a mess. Describing alcohol as a bad thing, he said that many people are drinking here and there and they are also dying due to wrong things being mixed with them. The CM said it is a social reform drive, it will continue. It will continue in every village, in every city.
