As a part of Nasha Mukt or addiction free state-wide campaign, the world’s largest human chain has been formed in Patna’s Gandhi Maidan on Saturday led by Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

The purpose of the human chain is to show staunch support towards the alcohol ban that has been imposed in the state.

“An alcohol free Bihar would bring in a new era in the country and that no one will be permitted to use intoxicating substance and tobacco products,” Nitish said.

He also added that Bihar will become an ideal state of the country as dreamed by Mahatma Gandhi.

Apart from Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and his ally Lalu Prasad Yadav, over two crore participants took part in the campaign to show their support towards prohibition.

The total length of the human chain was over 11,292 kilometers.

People that participated in the human chain include teachers and students from schools and different colleges in the state.

Earlier Bihar’s High Court had ruled that students should not be forced to participate in the campaign.

The human chain covered all the Panchayats and the blocks in the states. The human chain formation began at 12:15 PM and after lasting for duration of forty-five minutes, the chain was dissolved at 1:00 PM on Saturday.

In view of the human chain formation, all traffic in the state had been stopped from 10 am to 3 pm.

In order to record the world record, the government deployed satellites, drones and low flying aircrafts to capture images from various parts of the human chain.
