Bihar Govt likely to make some slight amendments in ‘Liquor Prohibition Law’
The JD(U) and BJP led government of the Indian state of Bihar, which adopted an historic decision to prohibit the sale of liquor in the state, is verifying that is there any need to make amendments in the existing prohibition law.
At the time that the prohibition was executed, the Lalu Prasad Yadav’s RJD and Congress party were the prime partners of the Nitish Kumar’s JD(U).
Now, when the policy is being reviewed, the BJP is the one and only strong partner of the Kumar’s party.
While speaking about the prohibition, recently, the Bihar CM, Nitish Kumar, has asserted that he has complete confidence in the policy and he has successfully redistributed the poor workers who entirely depended on this sector for their livelihood. He has also boasted that he is ready to face any consequence of the decision his government adopted. Meanwhile, he has indirectly indicated that he is closely monitoring the sector and verifying the law and its pros and corns. There has been some clear indications in his speech that he is aware of the fact that some are misusing the provisions of the law for some petty personal gains.
So far, over 20.47 lakh litres of Indian Made Foreign Liquor and 9.25 lakh litres of country-made liquor have been ceased in the raids carried out in the state since the inception of the law.
