Nitish Kumar’s new rule: Bihar Officials cannot consume alcohol anywhere in this world
This is a fact that young generation is totally addicted to alcohol now –a- days. There is nothing to accept here. Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar participated in a human chain in support of liquor ban last month. Earlier, alcohols was totally banned from the Bihar, but it was not vanish completely. Now according to the new rule of Nitish Kumar, Bihar officials cannot consume alcohol anywhere in the world. Officials of Bihar, which went dry 10 months ago, cannot drink outside the state or even abroad, in Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s new rule.
Yes, this is a strict rule introduced by the Nitish Kumar. The Bihar cabinet cleared an amendment in the state prohibition law earlier this week, after which bureaucrats, judges or magistrates caught drinking anywhere in the world would be punished. If they will consume alcohol anywhere in the world they may face dismissal, suspension or even salary cuts. Service rules for officials, which banned them only from drinking on duty, has been amended.
Bihar is the first state who imposed such a rule
With such a rule Bihar has become the first state to have such restrictions for officials and judges. This drinking ban will also be applicable to Bihar officials on deputation outside the state. Recently, the Chief Minister was asked at a public meeting whether bureaucrats can be put through alcohol tests. The man who asked the question alleged that officials were still drinking despite prohibition. Well, still not cleared that how the government will keep tabs on officials outside the state. One report suggests that they may only act when there is a complaint.
With banning on alcohol completely, Nitish Kumar referred it as a revolutionary step that will automatically reduce crime rates and other unlawful activities. Last month, Mr Kumar was joined by his good friend and ally Lalu Yadav joined thousands of people across Bihar in what was described as the longest a human chain ever in support of the liquor ban.
