SummaryUnder attack from the Opposition for deaths due to consumption of spurious liquor, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today ruled out imposition of prohibition on alcohol saying the measure was not practical, but promised deterrent steps to contain supply of illicit breweries.

like murder, dacoity, robbery and kidnapping for ransom has ebbed during the NDA rule as comparison to the corresponding data during the RJD-led rule during which kidnapping had become an industry.

Measures like scientific investigation, speedy chargesheet and trial of the criminals cases, including those related to corruption, have been fast tracked to usher in a peaceful law and order situation and deter those taking to crimes, he said.

The state government has hit another novel idea to deal with crime by seeking cancellation of bails of hardened criminals, besides confiscate their properties amassed through corrupt, ill gotten and criminal means, the CM said.

The enforcement directorate have been involved in the task and the corrupt people have been dealt with under the prevention of Money Laundering Act, CM added.

On utilisation of the allocation under the annual plan outlay, the NDA government has ensured optimisation of the funds during a financial year and results have been positive as comparison to the RJD-led rule during which the then government was unable to use the funds properly, he claimed.
