Only the affluent who love to drink are against me: Nitish Kumar

IndiaTimes Monday, 27 November 2023
CM Nitish Kumar plans to visit every home in Bihar to determine the stance on the liquor ban. He wants to ensure that the survey covers all areas and is not limited. Nitish attempted to make prohibition a poll issue in UP and Jharkhand but did not receive support from his allies. He stated that only the affluent who enjoy drinking are against him. Former CM Jitan Ram Manjhi criticized prohibition, particularly its impact on Dalits. BJP also wants a review of the liquor law, claiming it has failed. The government is prepared to fund another study to gauge public opinion on the ban.

Maratha Reservation Bill Passed in Maharashtra, CM Eknath Shinde Asserts Legality | Oneindia News

After three years, Maharashtra passes a bill granting Marathas 10% reservation in government jobs and education. This is the third attempt in a decade to address their concerns. Marathas, a significant community in Maharashtra, have historically held influence but felt sidelined. Previous efforts, including a 2018 Act, didn't fully satisfy their demands. With elections looming in 2024, some view this move as political maneuvering, while others await potential legal challenges. #Maharashtra #MarathaReservationBill #CMeknathShinde #Shinde #DevendraFadnavis #BJP #ShivSena #Supremecourt #Marathacommunity #Marathanews #Marathi #Maharashtranews #Worldnews #Oneindia #Oneindia News ~HT.99~PR.152~ED.101~
