Sushil Modi surrounded Nitish government
Before August 2020, when RJD was in opposition, Tejashwi Yadav used to say that home delivery of liquor is being done in Bihar. Today he is in power with Nitish Kumar and BJP is in opposition but the blame on the government is the same. Now CM Nitish’s old friend Sushil Modi has raised his voice. He has asked 10 questions to the Nitish government regarding liquor ban in the state.
‘Government should withdraw the cases against 8.25 lakh people’
Former Deputy CM and Rajya Sabha member Sushil Modi insisted on withdrawal of cases against all the 8.35 lakh people arrested so far under the prohibition law. He has asked many questions to the government. He said that these lakhs of people have not been caught in any serious crime like murder, kidnapping, rape, bank robbery or train robbery. They should be forgiven and given a chance to improve. Such a large number of people who are ‘guilty’ in Bihar just because of drinking alcohol, would not have come under the category of criminals if they were in other states.
Sushil Modi raised this big issue
Sushil Modi further said that only such poor people are being put in jail under the prohibition law, who cannot pay a fine of Rs 2000 thousand. Rich people get off easily. During this, the BJP leader has asked 10 questions to the government.
