Bihar as dry state

Bihar is surrounded in direction with states which are not dry. Boarders with other states and Nepal are all porous as such excise & police department cannot prevent smuggling with present work culture and strength. Unemployment of youth and their economic condition also reason for opting for smuggling of wines after declaration of Bihar as dry state as it gives them huge profit. In such a way declaring of Bihar as dry state peacefully without smuggling will not succeed till economic status of Bihar get uplifted with increased employment of youth and change of moral status of police and excise department.
