Another state Chhattisgarh has taken steps towards liquor prohibition too and as part of that, liquor sale will not be permitted in villages with population up to 3,000, said chief minister Raman Singh on Tuesday. Significantly, the sale of liquor has already been prohibited in villages having up to 2,000 population.
Now there wouldn’t be any liquor shop in villages with population up to 3,000. The chief minister in Munger, Bihar further stated that his government has already tackled “Kuchiya Pratha” (outsourcing liquor sale to middlemen/contractors) and liquor is sold only from government outlets.
Singh was in the state to Swami Niranjanand Saraswati of the Munger Yoga Peeth. Padma Shri Sarawati hails from Rajangaon in Chhattisgarh. He left home in early childhood to join Munger Yoga peeth in Bihar and now he is heading the same.
Before proceeding towards Munger, Singh paid a courtesy visit to his Bihar CM Nitish. Kumar presented a replica of Lord Buddha to Singh.
