Patna, March 25: Bihar’s Deputy Chief Minister Tejaswi Yadav on Saturday came down heavily on new Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and dared him to ban liquor and set up an “anti-Daru squad.”
The statement comes a day after Bihar BJP demanded anti-Romeo squad in the state following UP CM’s similar drive in Uttar Pradesh. The RJD rejected the suggestion and said we do not need such bans.
Tejaswi, the younger son of Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav, told media here, “Liquor is dangerous, it pollutes health and society. Yogiji don’t divert people’s attention and constitute anti-Daru squad (anti-liquor squad),”
Tejaswi said if Adityanath is a ‘Yogi’ and an honest advocate of religion, he should order a total liquor ban in Uttar Pradesh like in Bihar.
The Nitish Kumar-led Grand Alliance government enforced total prohibition on April 5 last year in the state.
