Nitish Kumar stated that alcohol-free India was something envisioned by Mahatma Gandhi because he believed that liquor destroys lives
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, who had made it an election promise in the lead-up to the elections, has clarified that the ban will be over all kinds of alcohol. Bihar is the fourth state to become dry.
Alcohol ban decision by Bihar will not only have huge ramifications for the people of the state but also on the exchequer because 67 percent of the state's sales tax revenue comes from liquor which was over Rs 3,600 crore in the last fiscal.
