Yoga would be meaningless unless a ban was imposed on sale of liquor across the country, he said.

Kumar said he was doing yoga for several years but never publicised it.

He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had continued with the ban on liquor in Gujarat after becoming Chief Minister.

Maintaining that in a democratic system, welfare of the society should be accorded priority over trade and business, Kumar said his government decided to forego Rs 5,000 crore revenue from sale of liquor by imposing prohibition.

Kumar said additional revenue can be generated by creating a conducing atmosphere for promoting trade, business and industry.

He said there should not be any liquor shop within 3.2 km radius of the borders of a state where prohibition is in force.
