Ban on Alcohol in Bihar from April next year
Alcohol will be banned in Bihar from April 1 next year, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar announced in Patna on Thursday, making good on a promise he had made to a group of angry women at an event months ago. “In 1977-78 we tried to impose prohibition but it was not effective. But I feel women are suffering more than others (because of alcohol abuse)… I have instructed my officials to start working towards this and implement this from the next financial year,” Mr Kumar said at a function.
