Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has urged his Uttar Pradesh counterpart Yogi Adityanath,, not to come 'empty handed' but implement the liquor ban and 50 percent reservation for women in local bodies.
You (Adityanath) should take cue from us and implement liquor ban and 50 percent reservation for women in local bodies," Kumar said.
Kumar said "He must be coming empty-handed whereas I am here to launch various development schemes."
The Bihar Chief Minister took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for not fulfilling various promises made to Bihar during the 2014 general elections and assembly polls in the state the next year saying "We implement whatever works we promise, but others forget about it."
Kumar took a pot-shot at the cow vigilantes and said that they should learn to take care of the stray bovines before taking law into their own hands to deal with those involved in the trade of animals.
He claimed that the liquor ban has become a runaway success in Bihar and asked the BJP-ruled states to follow suit. Kumar said that his government will launch a total de-addiction drive as a follow-up action after the success of the liquor ban.
