Now there will be no jail for drinking alcohol, Nitish government’s big decision

A big decision has been taken amid the prohibition of liquor in Bihar. Now the drinker will not be sent to jail if caught. Instead, he will only have to give information about the liquor mafia. If the liquor mafia is arrested on the information received, then the drinker will not have to go to jail. This information has been given by Excise Commissioner Kartikeya Dhanji.
