Booze and Bihar

October 08 2018

The religious organisations in Bihar are in the docks, and prohibition is in full swing. And yet, the two symbols that are ubiquitous in Bihar today are Bhagwan (God) and booze. The latter is selling covertly and a bottle normally costing Rs 200 costs Rs 1,000 in the black. Notwithstanding the prices, sources reveal that a huge chunk of voters angry with prohibition (the number could be as high as two crore) have united in a commitment to vote out Nitish Kumar. “Booze is their birthright, and they must have it”)… just to ‘liquefy’ Tilak’s statement during the freedom movement.
