New Delhi: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Tuesday expressed his “happiness and satisfaction” since the state government passed the law to ban liquor on April 5.

“The happiness and satisfaction that I achieved from banning alcohol was something I never achieved before,” said the CM.

He said that the new policy has brought change in the society.

“Such big positive change has come in, why ruin it for a peg or two? Turn off the lights and drink juice, you will feel the same,” said Nitish.

Days ago, the CM said that there was no political goal behind the decision to impose ban on sale of liquor in the state, but to bring in social reform. He claimed that the ban has checked incidence of domestic violence in the state.
