- MP Sushil Modi came in support of Nitish Kumar
- Modi said: Nitish government should implement the ban more strictly
- ‘The state government should take the initiative so that the guilty are hanged’
In Bihar, questions are being raised about the prohibition law itself after deaths from drinking fake liquor in many districts in the past. While the opposition has described the prohibition law in Bihar as a complete failure, two great leaders of Nitish’s government ally, BJP, have also come face to face on this matter.
Bihar BJP President and MP Dr. Sanjay Jaiswal focused on the prohibition law on Saturday. Revealing the nexus of the police administration and the liquor mafia, he raised the demand for reconsideration of the prohibition law. On Sunday, former senior deputy minister and deputy Sushil Modi spoke in support of Nitish Kumar. He said that BJP is in favor of a liquor ban in Bihar.
Sushil Modi said that people have died in Bihar due to drinking poisonous liquor, it does not mean that the ban will end in Bihar. BJP is in favor of a total ban on alcoholic beverages in Bihar. The Nitish government should take appropriate steps to enforce the ban more strictly.
On the other hand, Sushil Modi has demanded from the government that those guilty of the poison liquor scandal receive the death penalty. Along with this, a quick judgment of the whole matter should be made. The state government should take the initiative to impose the death penalty on all guilty.
Sushil Modi said that the state government should give compensation of 4 lakh rupees each to the families of all those who died in the poison liquor scandal in the past, because the family is not guilty of this incident. On the other hand, Sushil Modi defended the state government and said that even in states where there is no prohibition, people die from drinking spurious liquor.
