Nitish cites China's ban on opium to buttress prohibition

Press Trust of India  |  Patna 

Strongly pleading for prohibition, today cited China's example, saying it moved forward on the path of development after shunning opium.

Linking development with prohibition, Kumar said was "drowned" in opium and moved fast on the path of development after shunning it.



"People want that we compete with China... Will face if its younger generation is drowned in liquor?" Kumar said after flagging off a 'Jagriti yatra' in connection with 350th Prakash Parva from Harmandir Sahib here.

Kumar, who is keen on enforcing total ban on liquor in the state, said, "Prohibition is executed in this year keeping in mind the celebration of Guru Govind Singh's 350th Prakash Utsav and centenary celebration of Mahatama Gandhi's Champaran satyagraha."

The 350th Prakash Utsav would start from December end and continue till first week of next year. The state has been making preparations for this mega event of Sikhs at a war-footing.

The centenary celebration of Champaran Satyagraha to herald launch of agitation by against British rule from Champaran of in 1917 would also commence in early 2017.

Undettered by criticism from opposition on prohibition, he quoted Swami Vivekananda as saying that while undertaking a big task one has to face ridicule and resistance of people but ultimately the critics would also walk along.
